Nikos Moraitakis and Spyros Magiatis were early employees in a fast-growing company and found themselves spending most of their time hiring. But there was no tool that worked the way they wanted.
When they began building their own solution they turned to George, a long-time friend and community peer. George’s fund led the company’s seed round early in 2013.
George patiently nurtured an authentic startup scene in Greece. He invested in startups before it was cool, and worked tirelessly and honestly to win the respect and preference of the best Greek entrepreneurs.
Four years later, the company employs 135 people in Athens and Boston and serves 6,000 enterprise customers around the world. Workable is a top player in its industry.
An investor of uncompromising integrity and ambition, George is equally comfortable working with fledgling companies at seed stage and sitting on world-class boards, seeing eye-to-eye with some of Europe’s finest venture capitalists.
Meanwhile, Nikos and Spyros are building a company that is changing the way recruitment is understood. They are making it Workable.
George has been an indispensable partner in our journey and the first person we call in good times and bad.
