7 Greek Start-Ups You Need To Know About

7 Greek Start-Ups You Need To Know About | Greece.GreekReporter.com Latest News from Greece



HELIC – Smashing smartphone barriers globallyIf you own a smartphone, it most probably uses technology developed by Helic. Helic dates back in 1994, when its creators (then PhD students in Athens) were trying to predict how a spool would react after being inserted in a chip. At the time, only 4-5 people worldwide were interested in this topic. A few years later, an investor from the US offered them their first injection of capital. Their research led to the development of software tools which designers worldwide use today to design wireless chips which connect smartphones to headsets or Wi-Fi hotspots, act as FM Radios or offer GPS services. Helic technology allows hardware companies to, for instance, analyse the spiral inductor, a device found today on wireless chips, in seconds (before Helic this process took hours to perform). They are also offering a “shrinking machine” for silicon, allowing smartphones to become smaller, thinner, lighter and cheaper. Serving clients like Intel, Sony, Fujitsu, Samsung, Huawei, Panasonic, the company now has branches in Athens and Volos (Greece), in San Jose (California) and in Yokohama (Japan).
RAYCAP – keeping your internet running
Another start-up that turned into a multinational is Raycap, a designer of industrial lightning protection and cable management solutions for mobile operators. Their systems are used to protect crucial electronic infrastructure (in telecoms, industrial automation, defence, power generation, etc.) from extreme weather conditions, such as lightning. This is becoming increasingly important as modern, highly sensitive radars are very sensitive to bad weather, which means they could be vulnerable when they are needed the most. Based in Athens, Raycap has production units in Drama (Greece), the US and Romania, and subsidiaries in several countries Germany, Switzerland, Mexico, Canada and others.

CONSTELEX – Greeks in Space
With the assistance of EU funding and the support of the European Space Agency, Constelex, a small 4-year-old start-up, designs and develops optical fibre amplifiers and photonic systems for future fibre-optic communication networks. In addition to terrestrial telecommunication systems, Constelex devices can be applied in remote sensing and satellite applications. Especially in the space domain, Constelex systems can be applied in high-speed intra and inter-satellite photonic systems that can now enable new Earth Observation and Satellite telecommunication missions. A few weeks ago, Constelex was acquired by Gooch & Housego, a leading European manufacturer of optical components and systems. The acquisition could allow for the application of this technology to next generation satellite systems that will use light as a means of more advanced, reliable and faster communications.

TAXIBEAT- the smart way to catch a taxi
Greek businesses are also present in the mobile App scene. Taxibeat is a free app allowing you to choose the nearest taxi based on desired features (nicest vehicle, most recommended driver, free Wi-Fi, on-board chargers, pets on board, baby seats, etc.). When you select a taxi, the app locates you instantly, so the driver knows where to pick you up from (and you can see them approach you on the map). Taxibeat is available in Athens and Thessaloniki, Paris, Mexico City, Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paolo.

COOKISTO – turning home cooks into micro-businesses
Cookisto is an online community where users can find home-cooked dishes prepared by local cooks or post their own dishes. Ordering meals is made easy by features such as the ability to “follow” a cook (meaning you enjoy their dishes and services and want to be notified whenever they post a new dish), to review dishes and cooks, to request specific dishes you’d like to taste.

CORALLIA – making innovation possible in your town
Start-ups in Greece can nowadays increasingly benefit for the rise of co-working facilities, which provide them with basic infrastructure where they can start off, but, most importantly, offer them direct access to other like-minded professionals, with whom they can exchange ideas on a daily basis. Corallia, the Hellenic Technology Clusters Initiative, is the first such platform to have been established in Greece with a view to helping innovation clusters start and grow.

THE EGG – bringing the start-up mindset to Greece

The egg (enter/grow/go) is a program which helps innovative entrepreneurs start their business, develop their business idea over a period of 12 months and then, hopefully, capitalize on the value of their idea with their own resources or through leveraging other investment funds.

'Greek Pony' Maker Namco is Back in the Game | Greece.GreekReporter.com Latest News from Greece

Greek production and exports are the antidote to the ongoing economic recession. The fourth generation of the car manufacturer company, Namco, is prepared under secrecy to start functioning once again, something that will result in the creation of new job opportunities for hundreds of unemployed people.

Namco has their headquarters in Thessaloniki, Greece. The company has been struggling for two years now against bureaucracy in order to start manufacturing cars again. The car manufacturer, in order to start producing cars, must first get relative permission from the Greek Ministry of Infrastructure, Transport and Networks.


“We hope that by the end of the year, we will be ready,” says a representative responsible for the promotional campaign of the product.


The company’s target is the construction of 5,280 vehicles annually, or 24 per day. It is estimated that 400 new job positions will be created.


Namco was founded in 1950 by the Kontogouris Brothers. It introduced the most successful Greek vehicle ever constructed to the Greek buying public, the Pony. The main construction unit is in Thessaloniki.

In 2007, Vivartia plans to expand into organic farming in Romania and into fast-food chain franchising in Serbia.
In 2008, Vivartia bought US biscuit and snack-producer Nonni’s for $320 million as part of its expansion plans, along with its brands Nonni's and New York Style and Old London. The acquisition also ensured an entry of Vivartia's 7 Days croissant products to the US market, to be followed by other products at a later stage. In that same year, Vivartia also announced plans to open a new plant in Yadkinville to compliment its 6 existing US plants. As of March 2010, Vivartia now produces and sells 7-Days Croissants in the United States.
