South Poland Cleantech Cluster 

organizes another networking session for start-ups

"What start-ups need Business Angels for? How to get them?"

Date: Tuesday, 27.02.2018, at 18.00 - ??
Place: NordicHouse, ul. św. Anny 5, Krakow
Registration takes place by buying a free ticket for: business angels

During the activities of most start-ups, a moment arises in which the so-called bootstrapping, or basing development on own resources, is not enough for effective business development. Inability to obtain external financing and lack of own funds creates a barrier called the capital gap. A remedy for this problem may be cooperation with the Business Angels. Angel's support, however, is not just cash. It's also called smart money, or experience, a network of business contacts, managerial knowledge or know-how.

You will learn about the pros and cons of working with business angels at the next networking meeting.

Special guest:
Jacek Kubrak, business angel, investor, creator of innovative projects and technological solutions

Handover of the model for BLOXHUB (DK)

 |  Category: SPCleantech News

On 08.01.2018, Dominik Darasz, on behalf of the architectural firm Horizone (member of SPCleantech) and SPCleantech, handed over a three-dimensional model of the newly established BLOXHUB headquarters, of which SPCleantech is a member. The BLOX building, located in the very center of Copenhagen above the main canal, will be officially taken into use on 01.05.2018 and will also be the headquarters of SPCleantech in Copenhagen.

After traveling over 1000 km and nearly 12 hours of travel, the model of the central part of the capital of Denmark, with the highlighted building of the new BLOXHUB headquarters in Copenhagen reached its destination.

The model is the contribution of HORIZONE, a member of South Poland Cleantech Cluster, to the international collaboration between companies in the new technology sector. Model – permanently – will be exhibited in the entrance hall of the newly built BLOX building designed by Rem Koolhaas and OMA (it is visible in the central place of the model, illuminated building).

The model was personally delivered by Dominik Darasz, handed over to BLOXHUB director Torben Klitgaarden in the presence of Martin Kahl, Cleantech Cluster representative in Copenhagen.

Model 110: 110 x 110 cm scale made of maple wood was created in the studio of Horizone Graphics in Krakow.

The designer of the Blox building (40,000 m2) is the world-famous Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas and his OMA company.

BLOXHUB aspires to bridge architecture, design, construction and digitization and to connect companies, researchers and organizations to help create solutions for a good city life and ultimately reach the UN Development Goal 11: to make cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable. By creating an eco-system of stakeholders within urbanization, we provide what we believe is the best conditions for connecting, sharing and scaling businesses that create cities for people.

BLOXHUB will move very soon to new premises in BLOX with co-working space for hundreds of start-ups. BLOX is a massive building housing a range of creative and cultural institutions. When opening in may 2018, the place will become the center of a number of initiatives regarding smart buildings and sustainable development of buildings and Smart City and sustainable development of the cities. BLOX sets the settings for a popular urban space, playgrounds, housing and cafes.

BLOXHUB was founded on June 3, 2016, by Realdania, the City of Copenhagen and the Ministry of Industry, Business and Financial Affairs. It is a non profit member association for companies, research institutions, organizations and municipalities.
The BLOXHUB association is agile and comprises a board, a secretariat and two categories of membership: the once who live here and the community members.
