Stavros Messinis is a member of Startup Weekend's global facilitator team having facilitated events in Cologne, Athens, Jeddah and Chisinau and will soon present it in Nicosia, Cyprus too. He is also the facilitator of SWNext. Stavros' primary role is as cofounder and community curator of TheCube Athens, Greece's largest startup cluster, event space, co-working space and makerspace. TheCube hosts a number of technology startups and is home to the many of Greece's tech meet-ups and startup events. Previously, Stavros had cofounded coLab Athens at Startup Weekend Athens, 2009. coLab was Greece's first coworking space and went on to become Greece's biggest network of coworking spaces with a presence in 3 cities. Stavros sold his stake in coLab in February 2013 and has since started The Cube among other things. Stavros also curates the StartupDigest newsletter in Athens. His most recent initiatives have been Foundersmeal.com, a global community of startup founders that gather in cities around the world for a casual meal, exchanging best practices while socializing and networking. His latest initiative is CampusBus.org, an entrepreneurship themed roadshow travelling around Greece, setting up an entrepreneurship campus for a week in each city and leaving behind an energized local community. CampusBus is a not-for profit initiative.
