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

On Wednesday, 15.03.2017 at 18.00, SPCleantech organized in cooperation with the Pre Acceleration Point next edition of the NordicHouse Café for Start-ups. These regular meetings in the form of informal networking meetings, are a continuation of workshops for start-ups and 2 conference organized in cooperation with NordicHouse and KIC InnoEnergy.

Networking meeting was held in the basement of SPCleantech and NordicHouse offices, św. Anny 5 in Kraków

The theme of the event was “Unleash your creativity. What is lateral thinking?

We are taught, to follow the shortest route when we are looking for some answers. For solving problems, the mind uses experiences from the past. This procedure is correct, but having little to do with creativity. Instead of using elaborated and tested traditional thinking, one should jump back for a moment, to reverse the problem, or to focus on the seemingly obvious piece of riddle. Rejection of linear and vertical thinking, is a simple way to awakening creativity. It is not easy to switch from vertical to lateral thinking, but if you try, good ideas by themselves will get into your head.

Special guest: Dr. Paweł Cabała, Head of Department of Process Management, University of Economics (UEK) in Krakow
“Seeing the forest behind the trees – the basics of systems thinking”
