Grow Your Business Through JOIST’s GROW Services

The modern business world is characterised by constant and rapid changes to which businesses must constantly adapt. Innovation enables them to meet challenges and find ways to grow and thrive in the international competitive environment.

Recognizing the uniqueness of each business venture, JOIST Innovation Park, through the GROW services category, offers integrated and customized solutions necessary for the growth of a business. How can GROW services such as JOIST Marketplace, innovation management, digital maturity assessment, and JOIST Community transform your business and drive it to a better future?

What is JOIST Innovation Park?

JOIST Innovation Park, or JOIST for short, was founded in 2022 in a former industrial space of 1,800 sqm in Larissa to seek new ways to adopt innovation by individuals and businesses with different backgrounds and goals. 

Apart from the practical aspect, the presence of JOIST in such a space also has a symbolic nature. It marks the passage from the third to the fourth industrial revolution  (Industry 4.0), dominated by new technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT), automation and robotics. 

In this context, JOIST and its experts help businesses find ways to grow, exploiting the potential of new technologies and adopting a culture of innovation in order to move forward in their digital transformation, which is more critical than ever.

What is GROW?


GROW is one of the six categories of services offered in JOIST Innovation Park. GROW’s services are identified by the black colour in the JOIST tangram and are geared towards providing digital solutions and tools for developing a business or research team. GROW services help businesses optimize their processes, effectively integrate innovation and identify growth opportunities to increase their competitive advantage. The remaining categories of JOIST services are Work, Create, Play & Learn, Fund and Meet & Connect. One may use these services individually or in combination with another.
