networking for Start-ups
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.

On Thursday, 16.02.2017 SPCleantech organized in collaboration with Pre Acceleration Point, the NordicHouse Café, an informal meeting place for networking for start-ups. These regular meetings in the form of informal networking meetings are a continuation of workshops for Start-ups and 2 conferences organized in cooperation with the NordicHouse and KIC InnoEnergy.

The networking meeting took place at the seat of SPCleantech, NordicHouse, ul. św. Anny 5 in Krakow.

The main theme of the event was “How to give a “kick” to your Start-up. What is traction?”

“Start-up is a company designed for rapid growth. The fact that the company has recently been established, does not make it a start-up. Start-up does not have to work in the technology industry, benefit from the VC investment or have a specific exit strategy. The only important feature is growth. Everything else that we associate with start-ups, is due to growth “- Paul Graham
Traction is growth.
The desire to get traction defines Start-ups.

Our special guest this time was Piotr Przewrocki, mentor, investor – QBN Seed Fund

NordicHouse Café is:

  • informal meeting place for start-ups in all phases of activity – here you will spend the evening in a relaxed atmosphere in the company of other start-ups, mentors or investors
  • you have an idea for a start-up, but do not know how to implement it – others more experienced will advise you how to do it
  • you lack a partner, investor or mentor – maybe you can find them here

Business cards, brochures or other promotional materials were exchanged during the event.
