"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.

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
