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 July 1st, 2016, South Poland Cleantech Cluster was awarded with the Bronze Label of the European Cluster Excellence Initiative as a matter of recognition for our engagement. SPCleantech can use this certificate and the label for a period of two years as part our marketing activities.

The Bronze Label Certificate was awarded on the basis of a report presenting the results of the cluster benchmarking analysis of South Poland Cleantech Cluster Sp. z o.o.. It is based on an interview with CEO Janusz Kahl which was conducted on June 17th, 2016 by Jakub Karp from Rzeszow Regional Development Agency.

ESCA is the European Secretariat for Cluster Analysis. Based in Berlin and hosted by VDI/VDE Inno-vation + Technik GmbH, ESCA advises particular cluster managers and policy makers on cluster development while relying on an international network of specifically trained ESCA experts. ESCA experts have developed a methodology for cluster benchmarking that is acknowledged by both cluster managers and policy makers throughout Europe. Since 2008, more than 800 cluster management organisations have been benchmarked according to this methodology. Being additionally linked to and involved in the European Clusters Excellence Initiative (ECEI) from 2009 to 2012, ESCA experts contributed to the development of various tools that support cluster managers on their way to excellence.
