The event will be held on the 15th of February in Cyprus, during the ending month of the DiFens Erasmus+ EU funded project in order to present the results produced.

The project is about “Digital Security for Young Entrepreneurs”, giving the following results:
1. An e-manual including chapters about Cybersecurity, Business Digitalisation, Legal matters for online business, Social Entrepreneurship and Digital Security Risk Assessment, and
2. An online platform hosting the e-manual and additionally providing an environment and tools for users to connect and either provide or receive mentoring and advising in one of the above topics, in order for entrepreneurs to establish safely their digital start-up company. Thus a young entrepreneur will be able to ask guidance from Youth workers or other experienced mentors for any of the above topics regarding their digital (potential) business.

Beyond the project results, talks will be hosted regarding the e-manual topics and also presentations from Start-ups.

The event will be held at the university premises for a morning and an afternoon session on the same day (aprox. 9am-5pm). Coffee breaks and lunch will be provided for the day of the event.
