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

SPCleantech applied together with Bay Zoltan (H), KIC InnoEnergy/CC Poland Plus (PL), CVVI (Czech Republic), Optimizacija (Cr) and National Innovation Office (H) for funding to Central Interreg territorial cooperation instrument BOOST+ Project.

The BOOST+ is a consortium project submitted for funding to Central Interreg territorial cooperation instrument. Successfully concluded, the project will focus on improving the acceleration capabilities in the region through training and best practice sharing. The consistent acceleration model resulting from partners’ collaboration will benefit the innovation ecosystem long term as well as acceleration of specific cases in energy and clean tech.

 Project Strongpoints 

The main advantage of the project is the thematic focus on the domain of sustainable energy. The activities remain embedded in a broader context, however, lead to addressing the region-specific energy-linked needs and problems. The other advantage is the leverage of partners’ competences in business acceleration, including the biggest energy accelerator in Europe (240 ventures, 115 partners including Total, EDF, ABB, Schneider Electric), and disseminating them to enhance the innovation capacity. BOOST+ will also closely cooperate with policymakers in order to develop effective legal framework used in managing innovation.

Project Objective 

The objective of the BOOST+ Project is to foster sustainable links among the actors of the innovation system. To attain that, partners’ skills and competences in business acceleration will be leveraged, and their competences combined to establish the most efficient know-how in the domain of bringing innovative clean tech product and services to the market in a reasonable time frame. The pan-European co-op in the project will serve knowledge sharing across the region as well as well address a key topic in policy competitiveness of the energy sector through innovation.
