The speech by Barack Obama at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation was a fascinating experience. The long wait, the security measures with the conspicuous presence of the American security agents, and the imposing surroundings created an impressive background. The remarks were a confirmation of ClioMuse’s philosophy regarding the importance of new ideas. Innovation, creativity, and perseverance, against the adversities of everyday life, are values more necessary than ever. Barack Obama repeatedly highlighted the significance of hope and faith in carving a better tomorrow as engaged citizens and young entrepreneurs. ClioMuse is proof of our determination to contribute, to the extent of our abilities, to the prosperity of our community. We chose to remain in Greece and participate in shaping its future.

The kind invitation to attend President Obama’s remarks was a small, but memorable, confirmation of the correctness of our decision.
