Presentation of the L.A.V.E. You -Live A Volunteer Experience platform, by Mr. Nikolaos Kontaratos, Founder of the company “Happy Deals”, Co-Founder of the Nonprofit platform L.A.V.E.you, former BCA Student (’92)

On Thursday, the 7th of May 2015, the former BCA student, Mr. Nikolaos Kontaratos, Founder of the company “Happy Deals”, Co-Founder of the Nonprofit platform L.A.V.E. you, former BCA Student (’92), talked to BCA students at the BCA Athens Campus.  

“Since I was young, I have valued two notions: freedom and independence. For me freedom means to be able to work and express myself in the way I want and independence means the ability to do this without restrictions. After my studies at BCA I could do nothing else, apart from selecting the path of self-employment/ entrepreneurship”, Mr. Kontaratos stated at the beginning of his speech.

He continued stating how his passion about making a difference is what led him to co-found the L.A.V.E.you (Live A Volunteer Experience) platform, a social media channel which promotes volunteerism and social responsibility.

As with other social media channels, L.A.V.E. you is about connecting individuals – “L.A.V.E.rs” as he calls them-  who want to offer voluntarily work and help others.
