organizes the next regular meeting

"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.

Platforms of cooperation

Given the huge range of thematic industries that affect global climate change (see What is Cleantech), SPCleantech has decided to focus its efforts on coordinating the actions of its members and partners and integrating them into thematic platforms of cooperation.

Within the framework of the platform there are 4 types of cluster members: large companies and SMEs, universities and scientific research units, local self-government units (JST) and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). In addition, to these thematic platforms, selected key external partners are invited.

The activities of the cooperation platforms are based on regular, thematic meetings in the form of Business Mixers, organization of trainings, workshops and conferences and the creation of consortia around selected topics with the possibility of applying for EU funds available in the country or directly in the European Union.
