We are pleased to welcome to our team Dimitri Papaioannou as Consultant and Head of Scientific Processes! Dimitri brings 15 years of experience in management and entrepreneurship consulting with PRTM in Silicon Valley and Exelon Partners in Greece and in the US. A technologist at heart, Dimitri completed his Ph.D. in experimental atomic physics at the University of Virginia and worked as research scientist at Philips Research in the Netherlands, where he invented a new technique for breast cancer detection capable of discerning malignant and benign tissue without biopsy; he holds 17 patents on this technique.
Soon after his MBA at Cornell University, Dimitri was General Manager of the premiere strategy, communications and public affairs firm in Greece, CIVITAS, growing the company from 30 employees to 85 in three years. He was also Professor of Entrepreneurship and Innovation for four years at the American College of Greece (DEREE).
We believe that Dimitri’s unique experience, skills and critical thinking will help technology entrepreneurs in the process of launching and growing their business in Scandinavia, as well as big corporations applying innovation programs. We welcome him again and wish him a successful tenure at Eicorn.
