Stelios award winners
easyjet founder Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou awarded ten cash prizes of EUR 10,000 each on Tuesday to Cypriot entrepreneurs helping to build the island’s bi-communal relations. A well attended ceremony saw company teams drawn from both communities receive cash in the form of giant cheques from the Stelios philanthropic foundation, which can be used to help develop their businesses.
“This is the sixth year we have run this competition and I never cease to be amazed by the determination of our entrepreneurs to use business as a medium to break down the barriers that separate our two communities. Long may this continue,” said Sir Stelios.
