My Ad Discovery Workshop experience
We dig your gig
At the begining of this semaster I decided to attend the Ad Discovery Workshop, a class taught by Mrs Betty Tsakarestou. I didn’t know back then how different it would be from any other conventional class. Throughout the past four months I was able to be a part of a team and create our own start up business called Giggidygig. I was initiated to the idea of Giggidygig by Dimitris Balios, who is now our co-ordinator and social media manager. With the guidance of our professor we were able to better organise our idea and evolve it. Also our team participated at the Startup Weekend, where we had the chance to work with different coaches and enrich our project with some of their ideas too.
