Trusted for the largest initiative for Startups in Greece
As an Innovation Enabler, Mantis designed, implemented and currently operates the Elevate Greece Initiative and the National Startup Registry!
This project has been the highlight of our activity in the Greek Startup Ecosystem; and it was multidimensional. We started by studying and mapping best practices from other countries and reviewing the international literature on respective startup evaluation systems. We continued by developing the evaluation system with the use of algorithmic models through multi-criteria analysis and other methods, while at the same time the name and branding had to be decided. Once this project officially had its own branding, the website and digital portal was created.
For the platform, we used our version with Mantis IMS where we used methods and tools for the development of web applications that are widely used for such purposes, based on open source technologies (open source), emphasizing the user experience. The implementation was set up in the government cloud (Gov Cloud) in collaboration with executives of the General Secretariat for Research and Technology.
Concept and Branding: To promote the initiative, we conceptualized the project, created the branding of the initiative and finally designed and implemented the official website of the initiative.
Submission Procedure and Evaluation Criteria: Our CEO, Christos Nikoloudis, contributed – along with the ESETEK members (the National Council for Research, Technology and Innovation) – collaborated in order to establish the procedures about how startups can apply to the National Startup Registry, the criteria upon which applications will be evaluated and decided if the related startup is entitled to enter the registry or not.
IMS: Our Innovation Management Software – Mantis IMS, brought to life by our CTO, Demetris Gerogiannis was used as the information system to support the digital needs of the initiative and facilitate the submission- evaluation-monitor procedure of the National Startup Registry.
Digital Portal: Elevate Greece database is operated through the Mantis IMS platform and provides with analytics & insights for the Greek Innovation Ecosystem. Funding sources, industry, technology, company TRL and other indices are monitored.
Database and Analytics: Mantis B.I. generates the first official Database of Greek Startups and create powerful analytics and insights for the Greek Startup Ecosystem.
