This page presents communication initiatives by ALLILONnet and by individual members promoting the values of personal initiative and volunteering in Greece and encouraging particularly citizens to move towards a more entrepreneurial and innovative society.


Our members can suggest and promote, individually or in groups, proposals concerning legal, managerial and social reforms and particularly concerning improvements of policies and initiatives of the public sector that can assist in making Greece a country friendly to entrepreneurship and new initiatives. These proposals are published on behalf of individual members in order to promote public dialogue. In special cases, they can be approved by the Coordinating Board and promoted in more direct ways by ALLILONnet towards relevant authorities, other stakeholders and the broader society.

Angelos Pangratis

The creation of ALLILONnet was the initiative of its now honorary president Angelos Pangratis which started, along with some friends in Washington DC and reached its final form in 2012 in Geneva. His involvement with ALLILONnet has always been strictly on personal capacity without any affiliation with his functions with the European Union. 

ALLILONnet up to this moment is exclusively supported by voluntary contributions from its members.

All ALLILONnet members are volunteers and act within ALLILONnet fully voluntarily and without personal gain.

1. One to One Communication between members

To enable members and particularly the younger generation in Greece to communicate ("One-to-One") with other members or mentors willing to share their own educational and professional experience, with special focus on Studies, Career, Entrepreneurship and Innovation. This is facilitated through the "ALLILON MEMBERS AREA" on LinkedIn where most of our members participate and their CV information is available to each other as well as through our "only for members" part of this website, which includes all necessary information on our network of Mentors.


2. Exchange of new ideas, proposals and opportunities

To support and encourage members to exchange new and innovative ideas, as well as concrete opportunities and proposals. This takes place in our group area on LinkedIn where most of our members participate and in this website where all members have access.


3. Creative Mentoring

Mentoring is mainly offered on a 'one-to-one", basis. Established upon clear principles of professional solidarity and the general operating principles of ALLILONnet. It is an important element of the uniqueness of the ALLILONnet network.


4. Flow of information from ALLILONnet

ALLILONnet essentially uses two platforms: LinkedIn and its website but also uses Facebook and Twitter and other means such as interviews, meetings, seminars etc. In 2015 will begin our webinar presentations organised by members and mentors.

These meetings are open to all and are organized in the countries or towns were ALLILONnet has Local Coordinators. These meetings usually take place every for months and are concentrated on issues that promote solidarity amongst members in the professional sector.

ALLILONnet is an independent, non-governmental, not-for-profit initiative of Greeks and friends of Greece who share the vision that Greece will emerge from the current crisis by becoming a more productive and competitive economy at the global level, decisively turned towards entrepreneurship and innovation and which will at the same time foster more social cohesion and solidarity.


Greece finds itself in one of those defining moments in history, where each individual is required to commit to the wider common purpose acting proactively, with determination and with a spirit of solidarity and volunteering when needed.


The first objective of ALLILONnet  is to promote the spirit of solidarity in the professional field amongst Greeks and friends of Greece, in all layers of the society in the country and around the world and pursue this objective in ways that can be directly beneficial to many, particularly the youth.


The second goal  is to promote entrepreneurship. Today's dramatic unemployment, especially among the youth, cannot be adressed and sustainable growth cannot return without a radical improvement of the business environment and without a profound change of the overall mind set of the society in favor of productivity and innovation based entrepreneurship.


ALLILONnet is a network which facilitates communication between its members and beyond . It is an expanding group of people, of all ages, who are willing to communicate, to cooperate and to share their experiences, ideas and initiatives. Each member has something to give and something to receive. For many, ALLILONnet is an immediately useful tool. For everyone, it is a means to promote a message of initiative, creativity, cooperation, mutual encouragement and overall solidarity. ALLILONnet is solely funded by its members. It accepts no affiliation with political parties nor does it seek affiliation or funding from State institutions.
