The Annual Venture Fair is one of the major efforts by The Hellenic Initiative to bring investment to Greece in this critical economic period. Begun in 2015, the Venture Fair is a unique event in Greece, where discussion about investment is transformed into opportunity to make investment.
Vetted companies are prepared by THI consultants for an “American-style” pitch event that brings together investors from across Greece and the Diaspora. This year, we are focused on opening up the event to even more investors. THI recognizes that empowering entrepreneurs to succeed in Greece is vital to rebuilding the Greek economic base, stimulating job creation, and promoting positive social change.
Greece has the entrepreneurial talent; of this there is no doubt. They just need a fair chance to compete in the global marketplace, and THI is committed to helping them have that opportunity.

Dataviva has created a next-generation, real-time decision-making platform for enterprises that combines event-based processing, robust planning capabilities and an extensible AI framework with tested and deployed demand forecasting and supply chain planning solutions. The combination is unique in the market and allows retailers and CPG manufacturers to react faster to events, squeeze higher efficiency from their supply chains and integrate with their existing systems quickly, with minimal impact and without long transformation projects.
Our existing application technology has a large competitive advantage for the demand forecasting, buying and distribution of short-lifecycle products and low-sales-rate products, such as pharma, clothing etc. Our unique capabilities include the ability to forecast the demand of any product at any location, regardless of existing sales history and the continuous optimization of stock flows to reduce inventory costs while increasing service levels for the entire chain.
Our team has worked together for over 15 years, designing, developing and deploying retail planning systems for some of the world’s largest retailers and in some of its most challenging markets. We grew dissatisfied with the state of technology and, more importantly, with how this technology was positioned and deployed to retailers.
