The story

The story is a European blog dedicated to presenting startup, research and innovation news and stories of European founders and researchers globally. 

Emerging technologies and innovative new disruptive business models are transforming life, business and the global economy at unprecedented speeds. As digital technologies reshape the modern world, businesses established in less fluid times are having to make increasingly complex and critical decisions against the ticking clock of change.

Our story starts on the beautiful island of Cyprus. Our founder Panis Pieri launched the Cypriot startup blog in March 2015 via social media, to provide media coverage for the uprising startup and technology scene in Cyprus. In August 2015 we have secured some angel funding, we created our media company RiseTech Media and in November 2015 we launched the first startup blog dedicated to Cypriot startups globally. Currently, has 12,000+ organic social media followers globally. The last four years, #teamRiseTech attended more than 500 events providing live coverage on areas of innovation, startups, entrepreneurship and technology worldwide. 

During our trips abroad we have identified the need for a European blog focusing on these three sectors startups, research and innovation. So in 2019, we launched We would like to take this opportunity to say a big THANK YOU to all our readers, viewers and fans that support our work globally.
