Andreas Panayi Bio

Andreas Panayi brings invaluable USA perspective, strategic insight and hands-on experience in new venture building, operations and realizing shareholder value. He is a serial entrepreneur and throughout his more than 30 year career in the US, he has founded, developed, operated and sold companies in the professional services and information technologies area. Since the sale of his first company Kinesis Marketing, a Digital Tech Services company, he co-founded TKI, another successful Technology Application Development company with offices in the USA and India. Most recently, Panayi conceptualized, co-founded and launched Kinisis Ventures Limited, a business acceleration company with a specific mission to take a leadership role in creating growth opportunities for Cypriot companies that previously were unable to benefit from access to USA based business expertise, insight and networking. Panayi also co-founded and launched Kinisis Investments Limited which invests in “right stage” Cypriot companies with USA scalable value propositions.

Panayi also serves as a board member at TK Partners, a USA technology holdings company. Additionally, he teaches entrepreneurialism & new venture development classes as an adjunct professor at Drew University.
