Industry Disruptors-Game Changers (ID-GC) is an organization established with the vision of creating of an ecosystem that fosters and promotes innovative entrepreneurship in the wider region of the Mediterranean and the Balkans, focusing on start-ups and extroversion. Our mission is to break down barriers for regional entrepreneurs that will become industry disruptors and game changers with global reach. We deliver this through a competitive process that brings together entrepreneurs, industry sponsors, and accelerators.
Our strategy is to bring together, in an effective partnership, all elements required to create the acceleration process for entrepreneurs and start-ups to fulfill their potential. Moving away from previous models of ad hoc and fragmented support, we create a complete ecosystem by bringing together knowledge, mentoring and coaching, sponsorship, investment and funding, and networking in an integrated and methodological manner.
We focus on industry sectors that offer a competitive advantage, through the exploitation of the unique characteristics and entrepreneurial potential in the region, specifically agri-business, tourism, energy, creative industries, health and cleantech, while we consider innovation and new technologies (ICT) to be a horizontal priority.
