Event Description

Webcast Series: Digital Transformation

Please join us for a conversation with Kyriakos Pierrakakis, Minister of State and Digital Governance, about the Greek government’s plans for digitization. Minister Pierrakakis, a graduate of Harvard Kennedy School and MIT, is radically simplifying citizen interactions with the government, from birth through license, marriage and other life transitions, by streamlining access to this data and increasing its utility. The Greek government will issue by the end of 2021 a new digital identity card to allow citizens to access digital services with security, and Greece ranks second among EU member-states in bandwidth concession for 5G telecommunication network licenses.

The discussion will be moderated by Michalis Bletsas, Director of Computing at MIT Media Lab, and introduced by Alexandra Papadopoulou, Ambassador of Greece to the United States.


The Hellenic Innovation Network (HIN) has a mission to accelerate technological innovation and entrepreneurship in Greece to world-class level by 2030, thereby fueling the economy and job creation. As an outgrowth of MIT Enterprise Forum Greece, HIN is a US-based non-profit organization created with the support of the Consulate General of Greece in Boston to facilitate access to resources, partners, and best practices by building bridges between the diaspora in global tech hubs and the Greek tech community. Driven by an advisory group of global innovators, HIN disseminates startup news, broadcasts educational webcasts, organizes monthly CEO group meetings, and hosts in-person pitching and networking events.

Our online platform allows for virtual connections of our members in between events, so please register at to become part of our community and to learn more about Greek startups in the news.

About the Organizers

Hellenic Innovation Network, with the support of the Greek Consulate of Boston and MIT Enterprise Forum Greece, hosts events to educate those in the US about technology innovation and entrepreneurship in Greece, and offer Greek entrepreneurs an opportunity to pitch and network in the US. While our events are typically held in Boston, due to the covid-19 situation we are hosting a series of 30-minute webcasts, in order to keep our community connected until our next in-person event in the Fall. Please join us and bring your questions.
