The new success story of the STARTAB Pajaritos Fine Art & Jewelry Program

The success stories and businesses launched with the support of STARTAB are constantly increasing and concern all sectors of the Greek economy. Retail stores, creative studios, sustainability services, training centers, dietetics services are some of the ideas that became reality in Attica, Thessaloniki, Patras and Kozani, essentially supporting the self-employment of young people throughout Greece.

A very successful business based in Kozani, founded with the support of STARTAB is  Pajaritos Fine Art & Jewelry. Anastasia, with a distinct aesthetic perception, manufactures handmade creations such as hats, sticks and jewelry from clay and wood.

«When it all started, it seemed quite a difficult undertaking. I had a lot of thoughts in my head about how to stand out from the competition and how to communicate my idea and product to the world. But I had to step out of my comfort zone many times to take small steps and get to where I planned. I learned that, in a business you should always ask the people who have already done something similar or been where you want to be. The advice I have to give is to be willing, to take even small steps for your business and work towards your goals.»

Anastasia’s workshop is located at 24 Tranta Street in the city of Kozani. It is aimed at women who want to choose jewelry and accessories of special aesthetics and highlight their style and personality.

STARTAB aims to continuously train and guide young people to develop their business skills, achieve financial independence, give them the opportunity to change their lives and start their own business.

STARTAB is run by Corallia with support from Prince’s Trust International and is offered free of charge to young people aged 18-35. STARTAB’s goal is to establish itself as the largest Entrepreneurship Program in the country. The experience of the contributors in supporting new entrepreneurs and a strong network of advisors is a valuable asset for supporting startups that will play an important role in starting the economy.
