LearnWorlds amongst other notable startups of Greece’s burgeoning startup scene that are pushing back against a bleak narrative. New technologies, elearning trends and the global market thirsty for online knowledge, education and training drive LearnWorlds’ mission to provide an all-in-one platform to create and sell online courses.

Pushing the boundaries of an interconnected world, technology entrepreneurship is an appealing opportunity for elearning platforms and other tech-startups in Greece. Between 2010 and 2013, startups in Greece have increased tenfold between 2010 and 2013, while the capital invested in them shot from €500,000 to €42m. Google’s executive chairman, Eric Schmidt in 2013 discussed how Greece might harness the potential of its fledgling tech economy and expressed his hope that Athens might become a “high-tech mecca.”

22 Greek tech startups participated in the 2015 SXSW Interactive Conference in Austin, Texas sponsored by the Hellenic Initiative. The Global Entrepreneurship and Development Institute (GEDI), scored Greece as one of the ten countries that made the greatest gains in the Global Entrepreneurship Index score from 2014 to 2015.
