What is WATIFY?
WATIFY is a European funded initiative aiming to build the first platform for stimulating digital entrepreneurship across the EU. The project is implemented in all EU countries and Watify Cyprus is implemented by the Cyprus Information Technology Enterprises Association (CITEA). Watify emphasizes the importance of young entrepreneurs overcoming their doubts.
