"How to negotiate with institutional investors - Venture Capital (VC)?"

Date: Wednesday, 29.11.2017 at 18.00 - ??
Location: NordicHouse, ul. św. Anny 5, Krakow

Special guest: Marek Kapturkiewicz, co-founder & partner at Innovation Nest (VC fund), co-founder of SPIN Entrepreneurship School

During the activity of most startups there is a moment in which the so-called bootstrapping, development based on your own financial resources becomes no longer sufficient to effectively grow your business. There is a need for external financing. The type of funding often chosen by start-ups is cooperation with one of the venture capital funds (VC). The undoubted advantages of this type of financing are primarily the development of start-ups without debt, and the ability to use the knowledge and business experience of the VC's representatives. The most serious disadvantage is partial loss of startup control. You will learn about the pros and cons of working with VC funds during our next networking meeting.

On Thursday, 28.06.2017 SPCleantech organized another edition of the NordicHouse Café for Start-ups in cooperation with Pre Acceleration Point. These cyclical meetings in the form of informal networking meetings are a continuation of the workshops for Start-ups and 2 conferences organized in cooperation with NordicHouse and KIC InnoEnergy.

The networking meeting took place in the cellar of SPCleantech headquarters, NordicHouse, ul. sw. Anny 5 in Krakow.

The theme of the event was “Blue Ocean Strategy. What does it mean for Start-ups? “

The Blue Ocean is a market that is not yet discovered, customers who still do not know us and competitors left behind. In this space where the majority of business moves, the nature of the business for years ensuring its long-term profitability is defined. There is no place for competition, we set the rules of the game.

The blue ocean strategy throws companies the challenge of escaping from the bloody, red ocean of fierce competition, creating an indisputable market space where competition is not counted. Instead of sharing the existing – and often shrinking – demand and comparability with the competition, the blue ocean strategy appeals to increased demand and competition.
