Once a month, our partner and co-Chair of SEV’s Innovation Committee, Marco Veremis hosts innovative Greeks, who excel by achieving increasingly higher goals. His guests unfold their stories and share with us their exciting journey, experiences gathered along the way, but also their recipe for success.

Kyriakos Pierrakakis’ favorite subjects in school were math and history. He loves reading biographies of successful people and believes that politics should not be one’s main career.

After studying at the Athens University of Economics and Business, Harvard, and MIT, he came back to Greece ready to digitize the Greek public sector. Within 4 years, he and his team managed to grow Greek citizens’ digital transactions with the government from 8 million to 700+ million.

With Marco Veremis they discuss the meaning of life, the Cuban missile crisis, human resources management in the public sector and how ideologies evolve through the years.

We’d like to thank Microsoft for its support in producing the Innovative Greeks Talks series.
