Mindspace is a Greek Non-Profit organisation, whose objective is to cultivate the entrepreneurial mentality in young adults and university students so as to mobilize and empower them to actively participate in social, political and economic life as well as to take initiatives for their personal and professional development under the scope of volunteerism and business. In particular, it plans and implements actions to make them familiar with entrepreneurship in informal contexts (introduction to the business mentality through experiential processes, useful tools and the development of a different way of thinking) or via structured groups for the development of a business idea, regardless of their background (financial, academic, business, political). It also seeks to create networks of students who will inspire and voluntarily impart knowledge to their peers in national, Balkan and international levels. In a sum, it promotes the active participation of young people in initiatives with entrepreneurial and educational value, which will act as a catalyst in their empowerment and the development of society
