I’m Apostolos Papadopoulos but I usually go with apas, I’m
15 16 17 18 19 20.
I was one of “The Influentials” for 2011 in Greece.
I’m a Computer Science student and product guy with a strong technical background who enjoys working at the intersection of technology, design, entrepreneurship and culture. I enjoy programming, logic, coffee, the Internet, theoretical Computer Science, football (Go Pack!), startups, semicolons, and pop culture. A digital native and an outdoors lover since early childhood, I live & breathe in 0s and 1s but talk with bilingual proficiency in English, German and Greek. I’m an ex-member of the Greek Junior National Alpine Ski Team with a 1st place Giant Slalom win in the Greek Nationals. I like art, design, music, math, economics, and Apple.
Previously, I’ve done computational biology research at MIT CSAIL and built epilogos. I have also worked at the United States House of Representatives. Now I’m collaborating with Harvard Medical School.
I’m founder of 4sqwifi, a service between social location awareness and every-day lifehacks. Robert Scoble, TechCrunch, Lifehacker, ReadWriteWeb, The Next Web, Techmeme, away.gr, other web media outlets and several of the better major Greek newspapers covered it.
I’m also co-founder of APKO Capital, a hedge fund. After posting remarkable returns in its first year of its operations, it was covered by To Vima—a major Greek daily.
I’ve been profiled by To Vima and Kathimerini (another major Greek daily,) invited by the European Parliament to participate in a conference about entrepreneurship and economics, Greek Ministry of Education to attend an Entrepreneurship in Youth panel, ACSTAC as a guest speaker twice, was judge in TEDxAthens 2011 for its TEDx Challenge, spoke to one OpenCoffee, WordCamp, and other fine geeky events.
