The 2nd French-Greek Innovation Network Forum in Athens 'MAZINNOV', is an opportunity to listen to and meet major French and Greek innovators. The forum organized by the French Embassy in Athens. Tekmon Geomatics participated as a startup firm in the event 'Adopt a Startup' and is excited to have been chosen by Pierre Fabre and Ernst & Young.

Our Managing Director Nicholas Zinas presented Tekmon and the purpose of our participation at the event alongside Mr Marc.Pierre.YALOURI, CEO of Pierre Fabre Hellas and Dr Konstantinos Moros, Senior Manager & Advisory Services of Ernst & Young.

 - Talk to us about your startup.

Our startup firm is called Tekmon Geomatics and was incorporated in 2013. Tekmon is a software house that focuses on the design and development of enterprise software. We have so far provided tailor made digital solutions for prominent organizations in Greece such as Abbvie Pharmaceuticals and Attiki Odos. Through our collaborations, we have gained significant expertise on the unique needs of enterprise software.

 In addition to the tailor made digital solutions we offer companies, we also have developed our own in house  product which is called Tactical.  Tactical is a Software as a Service solution designed to help businesses digitize their daily operations and improve communications among their mobile employees. Tactical was introduced to the Greek market early this year and has already attracted customers such as the AB Vasilopoulos supermarket chain and the Athens International Airport. 

Our team consists of highly skilled and dynamic individuals who take on challenges and turn them into substantial results. 

- Share with us the reasons that made you participate in this initiative.

In 2016 we were invited by Cap Digital to showcase our product at Futur En Seine Digital Festival in Paris. Our experience of the French startup scene exceeded our expectations in terms of the enthusiasm and the prospects of collaborating with French firms. So, we didn't give it a second thought when we came across MAZINNOV.

We are very excited about this opportunity to work alongside EY and Pierre Fabre, two global leaders in their respective fields.

- Give us an overview of the ways you are going to work with the adopting company.

PF is currently undertaking a STRATEGIC Digital Transformation within their organization. And we are thrilled to assist in achieving their digital vision.

EY is a leader in the design and integration of enterprise software and has unique experience in industries that we are also targeting with our product Tactical. We are very much looking forward on E&Y mentorship in addressing specific technical and business challenges.
