As a journalist, you should have done your research better. That is in the case you care to provide your readers with a quality article that is also head and shoulders above the rest.

However, it’s just a shallow article with almost nothing to “take away”.

As one of fellow posters already mentioned, there is a good number of great startups from Greece. Here’s few: Babelverse, betcafe.com, tsoonami, etc.

Hopefully, you’ll investigate more for your next articles.

It’s neither of these! It is untapped talent that can no longer wait for the Greek market to wake up and smarten up – i.e. open up the market for young professionals to spin off, spin out, or start up (and create jobs). Young talent is tapping into its own abundance of skills, knowledge and ideas (most of the time overqualified for an under-qualified, receding market) and collaborating to kick start, create and map their futures. Why wait for tomorrow (“if” and “when” the market is ready for a new emerging generation of professionals and mindsets), when we are more than capable of doing something “now”. Just yesterday, I was reading the stats on EUROSTAT – we are top talent (unfortunately in a climate of negativity, finger pointing and labels, i.e. PIGS … hardly! And, no thanks!)

Greece is also home to big mobile marketing players like Upstream, Velti and InternetQ. There are also startups that succeed globally like Helic, Gipht.me, Incrediblue, Weendy and others.
