You always find a great business in a great entrepreneur, it's never the other way around.— Pavlo Phitidis, Aurik Business Incubator CEO
The individual who can lead from the front is a crucial element of entrepreneurial activity, you don't lead from the back.— Pavlo Phitidis, Aurik Business Incubator CEO
Entrepreneurial development is less about building a business and more about how you learn to think in building a business.— Pavlo Phitidis, Aurick Business Incubator CEO
The purpose of a business has to be to solve a problem. It is the only purpose for which you can exist.— Pavlo Phitidis, Aurick Business Incubator CEO
If you don't get driven by purpose first, you will never get out the starting blocks, this is why profit is important. At some point in time, purpose doesn't pay the bills.— Pavlo Phitidis, Aurik Business Incubator CEO
