Keep your head in the clouds and your feet on the ground” – this is the advice of successful Cypriot entrepreneur Costas Sisamos to others aspiring to set up their own business.

Through determination and a passion for education inspired by his original background as a teacher, Costas has developed the award-winning ENGINO 3D construction toys system to help develop creativity and imagination in children…the innovators and inventors of tomorrow! The programming can be adapted to the user’s needs and capabilities and combines modern electronics (PCs, tablets or smartphones) with the tactile experience of building.

With the help of funding from the Research Promotion Foundation, Engino has gone from strength to strength and today employs 40 people and exports to over 15 countries. Quite the success story.
