Hopwave (hopwave.com) started as a marketplace where Greek and foreign travelers in Greece can find wonderful experiences and excursions in the destinations they visit, as well as move easily and instantly to their place of residence by the use of their mobile or their laptop. At the same time, with the hopwavePRO service (hopwavepro.com), the company offers an integrated system for optimizing the management of reservations, resources, partners and viewing channels for providers of any tourist activity, excursion or event.
I participated in VentureGarden at the time I was in Thessaloniki and it was, as it still remains, the most organized, fast and efficient structure on business training and acceleration. When I participated in the program in 2015 I just had an idea and I did not know the needs of a business and the steps I should follow at the beginning of my new entrepreneurship career.
I met the VentureGarden program quite early, before taking my first steps in the business. This has helpedme to have a comprehensive picture of the needs of a business and to meet people with years of experience and a wealth of knowledge, willing to share their knowledge and to discuss our concerns. I believe VentureGarden has helped my decision to start my own business and continues to support our company's business up to date.
