The deadline for applications for the Stelios Award for Business Co-operation in Cyprus 2014 has been extended to September 30.
The Stelios awards ‘promote island-wide business cooperation between Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot entrepreneurs by giving promising ventures the funding boost they need to grow.
Up to ten awards of €10,000 each are presented to those teams which best demonstrate bi-communal teamwork and mutual trust at an annual event in Cyprus organised by the Stelios Philanthropic Foundation.’
This is the sixth consecutive year the awards are being handed out.
The foundation, started by easyJet founder Stelios Hadji-Ioannou has extended the deadline to allow more groups of Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots to submit their applications.
The awards ceremony will take place on October 15 at the Stelios Philanthropic Foundation in Old Nicosia where Sir Stelios will award ten business groups €10,000 each. To date €1.2 million has been awarded.
