The long-awaited and highly appreciated step by the Greek government to create a more attractive investment environment for Business Angels in the country has now been realized in the following Ministerial Decree: Business Angels who are tax-resident in Greece can deduct from their taxable income 50% of their investments in Greek start-ups registered on the ‘Elevate Greece’ platform. This applies to up to €100.000 per investment and up to a maximum number of three investments per year. See the original text here.
On April 15, 2021, at 3pm CET, HeBAN’s co-founder Prof. Panayiotis Ketikidis will moderate a DLT4All round table about ‘Public & Private Investment in DLTs: Quadruple Helix for Decentralization’.
