First inter-generational ‘Meet n Greek’ networking event held in Victoria

The Hellenic Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry Inc. (Vic) (HACCI) last week partnered with the Greek Youth Generator (GYG) to host ‘Meet n Greek,’ a next-generation networking event.

Held at South Yarra’s Botanical Hotel on the evening of Thursday, April 14, the event brought together more than 60 Hellenic Australian youth with a select group of HACCI’s industry-leading mentors, to build new connections and forge pathways into the business and professional community.

GYG is a social and cultural innovation incubator aimed at bringing young people’s ideas to life. It aims to increase awareness, accessibility, and creativity in the community space.

“This event was an amazing opportunity for GYG members to rub shoulders with some of our community’s most inspirational mentors and soak up some sage advice,” GYG co-founder, Dean Kotsianis, said.

“The mentors were all so generous with their time, and I know our members took a lot of value from the conversations they had. Hopefully some of the connections we made on the night will continue to grow into the future.”

HACCI is our community’s premier business and professional network. It has a four-decade history of building connections between people and businesses in Australia and Greece.

“One of HACCI’s key goals is to foster the next generation of Hellenic Australian business and professional leaders, which we’ve been doing for many years through our hugely successful internship and mentoring programs,” HACCI Chair, Fotini Kypraios, said.

“Events like this are pivotal to building genuine connections between current and future business and community leaders. HACCI mentors are always happy to share their experiences with the next generation to give back and help pave the way for leaders of the future.”
