Andrea Photiou is the 25 years old entrepreneur and Co-founder and CEO behind Playvybz Media Group Ltd.
She was named Runner-up Young Entrepreneur of Year 2008 and also an ambassador for Make Your Mark.
Andrea has always had a passion for music which led to her starting playvybz, and it was the same hunger and desire that made her chase her passion for music, a decision which you could say was shocking as she could have gone the easier route of becoming a professional author, her family, tutors alike felt this was the appropriate path, it only makes sense for someone that was a fluent reader at three years old, by 8, she could read like a 16 years old, so i guess it kind of made sense.
Instead, She took the path of becoming a DJ as that love and hunger for music just couldn’t leave her alone, she started on her journey, performing in clubs and wooing the crowds, then she decided to started to start her own radio station, an online radio station in 2007 which as she described “A radio station with a difference” with the help of Businesses, Sound and IT Consultants
