Who we are

VentureGarden was born of an idea regarding an entrepreneurship education program, between ALBA Graduate Business School, The American College of Greece in Athens and the Entrepreneurship Hub of ACT in Thessaloniki. As this dream was materializing, The Hellenic Initiative, the global Greek Diaspora organization working on the ground in Greece, stepped up and has committed to funding the program now for five years in a row. We are grateful to our fellow Hellenes from abroad, and their Philhellene friends and neighbors for making this investment for the future of Greece.

VentureGarden is a comprehensive educational and training program for entrepreneurs that want to develop their skills, gain access to a continuously growing entrepreneurial network and receive hands-on training.

​​​​​​VentureGarden launched in February 2014. Having worked with over 400 ideas so far, it has been designed to become your personal guide to entrepreneurship.

We provide training and support that helps develop knowledge, skills and networking to build your business. VentureGarden runs in Thessaloniki and Athens simultaneously and is free of charge.
