Academia to Industry

Internal education activity

11:00 – 12:00 Thursday 12 December, Julia House

RISE organizes an “Academia to Industry” internal lecture. The purpose of this activity is to showcase best practices of a Cyprus-based startup and how it brought an idea to the market.

LearnWorlds is a powerful, easy-to-use and reliable training solution for individuals and enterprises. A fully customizable, white-label solution to train employees and associates, educate customers, or sell online courses to a wide audience.

Panos Siozos, cofounder and CEO, will share the company’s story so far, how an idea became a successful cloud-based e-learning platform and how he created a remote team from Cyprus.
