“Finding opportunities by solving the problems of tomorrow today”
Pavlos will outline a framework for how to approach a business proposition by examining the key factors of: what problem are you solving, for whom, and assessing your ability to execute and maintain your position over time. Pavlos launched, grew, and exited (sometimes through failure) from a series of ventures, including software companies, advisory firms, food & beverage companies, etc, has mentored and assisted others to develop robust roadmaps for their businesses, and has set strategy and implemented practical solutions for banks, private equity funds, and other organisations. More importantly, he has a knack of jumping right up after he takes a fall. He now leads WiRE, one of the fastest growing fintech companies in Cyprus, which aims to transform financial industry by unleashing digital transactions of tailored products and services.
