Currently, he is the CEO of the Heart Group which he founded this year, a group of all of his companies that diversifies in the sectors of media, technology, entertainment, hospitality and real estate. Stylianos is a strong believer of exponential growth. His short in years but long in productivity entrepreneurial journey is the best proof for that.
