We are excited to announce our upcoming SAKA UK Entrepreneurship and Autumn Drinks event by Metavallon VC! This year, we are combining our SAKA UK Autumn drinks event with our first professional initiative in the field of entrepreneurship and start-ups. This is an opportunity to get informed about the innovative activities and connect with other UK-based fellow alumni active in this space.

For this initiative, we are proud to have the support of Metavallon VC, an Athens-based venture capital fund providing early-stage funding and hands-on development support to start-ups located in Greece, the UK and beyond, and focusing on exponential technologies, and science.

We are also pleased to have with us for the evening a special guest Prof. Costas Andriopoulos (’90) who is currently a professor in Innovation & Entrepreneurship and Associate Dean for Entrepreneurship at Cass Business School. Prof. Andriopoulos has kindly offered to moderate the discussion and provide his expertise in the field.

Alongside, six other distinguished alumni will be representing their work, sharing their experiences and learnings from their journey so far in the field.

Our guests for the evening are the following:

  • Myrto Papathanou – Partner at Metavallon VC
  • Katerina Kanteraki (’06) – Program & Operations Mgr at Metavallon VC
  • Tania Economou (’08) – Board Member at Reload Greece
  • Michael Kasimatis (’10) – Co-founder of BlakBear
  • Philippos Linardos (’10) – Co-founder of ShelfNow
  • Natalia Kritsali (’12) – Co-founder of Bloode
  • Alex Koumpas (’13) – Co-founder of Quanterium

The event will start with an introduction and informal open discussion with Prof. Andriopoulos and our guests. This will be followed by a networking session, a chance for everyone to talk to our guests in person as well as the rest of our fellow alumni.

For any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us by email ( or by PM to any of the co-hosts. We look forward to seeing you all there!
