Yiorgos & his team built 100mentors (www.100mentors.com), a VC-backed, EdTech company that empowers 100,000 learners (students & employees) in 17 countries to become more conscious about their lifetime decisions, by connecting them with 5,500 role models - mentors from the world's top employers; 300+ companies/foundations and 500+ universities. In 2020 100mentors became the go-to-tool for thousands of employees, who needed an asynchronous, digital, micro-mentoring app that could sync to their COVID-affected workflows.
The Tipping Point in Education (www.thetippingpoint.org.gr ) is Yiorgos' and his team's latest initiative to offer the 100mentors mentoring experience for free to Greek public under-resourced schools, in remote Greek islands and villages. Before EdTech Yiorgos worked in Mergers & Acquisitions for energy and infrastructure projects in the US, Spain, UK and in Finance and Logistics positions in the US, China and Greece. Yiorgos studied in AUEB, Ohio State University and Columbia University, where he held research and fellowship positions at the Blinken European Institute. Yiorgos is the recipient of scholarships and fellowships from 10 institutions, like the Propondis Foundation, the State Scholarships Foundation, the London Deloitte Institute of Innovation & Entrepreneurship and the Fulbright Foundation.
