Chrysalis LEAP is the first accelerator in Cyprus. It is a rigorous program for aspiring entrepreneurs, which provides participating start-up teams with the necessary tools and skills to transform their ideas in the field of sustainable development into solid, scalable and marketable business ideas.
Chrysalis is a team of six professionals, of diverse backgrounds, with solid expertise, strong networks and reach, all passionate to help people excel. Since early 2012, we have invested a considerable amount ofour own time and resources into making the Chrysalis LEAP accelerator a reality. Two of our members were winners of the Open Innovation Slam 2012 in Berlin. Their idea secured them a €95,000 award for promoting their green business. We want to help Cyprus’ entrepreneurship ecosystem grow.
Our vision is to promote growth in the field of sustainable development by providing a platform for fresh ideas to grow, be supported, and get implemented.
Our mission is to promote and develop entrepreneurship among individuals in Cyprus in the area of sustainable development by providing knowledge, training, and opportunities otherwise unavailable, and building upon ideas from development through to implementation. In essence: we nurture, hold the ladder for others to climb, support, and kick-start ideas.
