July 28, 2015— Ioanna Kouzoglou dreamed of being part of a groundbreaking endeavor in Greek hospitality and has launched a campaign on Indiegogo to create the first-ever crowdfunded hotel in Greece.
The Indiegogo campaign aims to raise $1 million in approximately one month. “Our primary goal is to make a 5-star hotel in Greece by the sea with your help and give back to you as many free rooms as possible! All the funders will be rewarded in many ways. From discount coupons and draw coupons to free rooms!” says Kouzoglou.
Kouzoglou is looking at two possible locations for the 5-star hotel:
Halkidiki, the first target location, is a coastal region that boasts of one of the best beaches in the Mediterranean. The region has the perfect combination of that distinctive Greek light, unspoiled landscapes, colours and fragrances. And the glorious natural setting is complemented by the rich culinary fare of the region and the living religious traditions of its people, manifested in a host of feast days and other ceremonies and rituals.
Foot of Mount Olympus, the second location, is a unique place that combines mountains and ocean to provide a wide array of activities for visitors and outdoors enthusiasts, such as mountain walks, climbing, biking, sea sports, swimming, and diving. In the midst of these is a vivid nightlife that everyone can enjoy. Mount Olympus is also noted for its very rich flora with several species. It has been the first National Park of Greece, since 1938, and a World’s Biosphere Reserve.
The crowdfunding campaign is a flexible funding one and is set to reach various milestones depending on how much contributions are received. The $250,000 mark will not be able to make the hotel come true but backers will still receive their perks from nearby hotels and affiliates. The $500,000 mark will allow them to create a 3-star hotel and will give backers a chance to stay at the hotel as well as receive more rewards. The $750,000 mark will allow them to have a 4-star hotel and create extra amenities such as a swimming pool and pool bar. Lastly, the $1 million mark will complete their plan and allow backers to receive more free rooms.
The perks form this campaign include hotel stays as well as a chance to enter the Indiegogo-exclusive draw where backers and their companions can win a week-long vacation in the new hotel.
The name for the hotel remains to be unannounced and backers will also get the chance to vote on which one of the five proposed names will be used by the new hotel and resort.
