Among the many invited to attend, four were selected to present their business to Chancellor Merkel and Prime Minister Samaras as a showcase of Greece’s potential.
Intelen, one of the four, was represented by its co-founder and CEO, Dr. Vassilis Nikolopoulos. After briefly presenting Intelen’s successful funding rounds and the international awards the company and its technology has won, Dr. Nikolopoulos talked about the international research and development projects the company has been working on since its founding, and the exportable know – how it has been producing as a result. Having based its R&D department in Greece, Intelen employs some of the most talented data and behavioral scientists the country has to offer, to work on developing powerful algorithms and other tools that radically change the way people perceive, measure and reduce energy consumption. With a mission to help people, and businesses, rethink their energy use and become sustainably efficient, Intelen has been developing ways to do so, and exporting its cutting edge know-how to businesses, partners and clients in Europe and beyond.
