JA Cyprus Celebrates Successful Company of the Year Competition

JA Cyprus Celebrates Successful Company of the Year Competition

Culminating a year of intense work and creativity, Junior Achievement Cyprus (JA Cyprus) celebrated its ‘Company of the Year’ competition last Friday, the first of its kind organised on the island.


Both Minister of Energy, Commerce, Tourism, and Industry, Yiorgos Lakkotrypis, and British High Commissioner to Cyprus, Matthew Kidd were in attendance, displaying their support for the JA Cyprus initiative, which aims to partner budding school-level entrepreneurs with professionals from various sectors to encourage ‘entrepreneurial education’.


What began as a classroom endeavour – with select teachers undergoing training to be able to effectively deliver the programme during the 2013-2014 academic year – resulted in the presentation of 25 ‘mini’ companies, courtesy of 200 students representing 18 schools island-wide.


Two judges assessed all projects presented, awarding the coveted ‘Company of the Year’ recognition to Stay Safe Security Solutions, the brainchild of students from a Paralimni high school.


The 16-years old developed an innovative product to combat tardiness at schools, which will help to reduce the time traditionally lost at the commencement of each academic lesson.


Now, Stay Safe Security Solutions will represent Cyprus at the European Company of the Year Competition, which is due to take place in Talin, Estonia, on July 25-27.


Additional companies honoured for their successful work include: BioYeah, a producer of organic products sold at well-known pharmacies and supermarkets in Nicosia; Easy Shopping Trolley, through which a new-style trolley has been designed for those with mobility difficulties; Delicious Minds, an innovative form of cooking that combines taste with emotions and thoughts; and Arsinoe, which aims to promote and reintroduce traditional songs and products.


Companies were moreover awarded for the qualities they displayed throughout the process, such as BrackNeck being recognised for overcoming major obstacles, managing to not only complete the programme, but to make sales, LanSaver for being the best exhibitors of the year, and JoyWorld for outstanding teamwork.


The event took place at the University of Nicosia’s Research and Technology Building, in cooperation with the Ministry of Education and Culture.


Piraeus Bank Cyprus served as the key sponsor, with additional sponsorship and support coming from: Deloitte, MS Jacovides, Metro Supermarkets, University of Nicosia, Hellenic Bank, Microsoft, Bionic, Helix Business Incubator, Mediazone, and Cyprus Business Angels Network.
