Stavros Messinis


The thing most people know me for is: my passion for technology and innovation.I’m always looking for a quicker, easier, cheaper way to do something. Sometimes I do it successfully, sometimes not.

I started Greece's first coworking space, it was great fun. Two years later I sold my stake in that, took a 6month break and then started a bigger and better space called The Cube Athens. (Go big or go home - Maria and I are having a lot of fun with this latest project.) In my spare time I facilitate StartupWeekend around the world. In the past, I cofounded which gets startup founders to eat together and talk business as well asa non-profit educational project called CampusBus.

One challenge I took on and overcame was: swimming an open water long distance race without training, fueled by 12 dishes of spaghetti, 32 sachets of corn syrup and a bit of courage.

My early years, before you probably got to know me were well protected from all foreign influences – I escaped to Europe at age 24 where my eyes were opened suddenly.

You might not know this: but I was once a budding artist, photographer and electronics hobbyist.

Im passionate about: Maria, Panos and George Jr II, Technology and my workplace.

In the next year or two: I hope to run the Athens Classic Marathon and buy a holiday home
