Michalis Gkontas and Petros Pitsilis are childhood friends. Michalis holds a degree in Business Administration from Athens University and continued his studies at the Global Entrepreneurship Program (GEP), through which he spent a semester at EM Lyon Business School (France), Zhejiang University (China), and Babson College (USA). Petros grew up mostly in Paris where he earned a BA in Economics from La Sorbonne University and a MSc in Management from EM Lyon Business School. Since Michalis and Petros shared the same passion for food and tech they joined forces to launch Forky.
