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

Janusz Kahl, CEO in SPCleantech visited on 20.09.2017 Västerås Science Park, Expectrum, robot cluster, Robotdalen and ABB headquarters in Västerås with the purpose to start cooperation in the field of Industry 4.0, especially in the process of automation and robotizing of production in smart factories. The cooperation will contribute to promoting the notion of Industry 4.0 among cluster members and supporting them in the process of introducing new technologies.

For some time we are entering Industry 4.0, where computers and automation are starting to work in a completely new way, where robots are remotely linked to computer systems equipped with machine learning algorithms that can learn and control robots with very little involvement of human operators.

Industry 4.0 introduces the so called “Smart factory,” where cyber-crime systems monitor the physical processes of the factory and make decentralized decisions. Physical systems become the Internet of Things, communicating and interacting with each other and with people in real time over the wireless network.

Robotdalen cluster, supports innovators, entrepreneurs, researchers and companies in developing and commercializing their robot innovations. It offers competence in product development, technical analysis, simulation, business development and market development. Partners and networks provide access to, for example, financing, prototype developers, early customers, and incubators. Within the Robotdalen (Valley of the Robots) cooperation takes place between industry, the academic community and public operators in the Södermanland, Västmanland and Örebro districts. This cooperation aims to strengthen the region as a world leader in the manufacturing, research and development of robotics.

In Robotdalen we made personal contact with Adam Hagman, a Polish industrial engineer responsible for industrial robots and robots working in the health and hospitality industries.
