"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.

“InnoTech Summit Krakow (KITS)”

 |  Category: Events

On Tuesday, 04.04.2017 at 10.00 a conference “InnoTech Summit Krakow (KITS)” was organized by the Foundation Krakow Miastem Startupów together with SPCleantech. The conference took place at the Faculty of Management AGH, ul. Grammar 10 in Krakow.

KITS is a conference that is a response to the challenges of technology transfer created in the walls of the university to the business. Its innovative formula allows to gather in one place: the young scientists with ideas of technology, entrepreneurs who can create innovative business and investors willing to support risky projects.

Business and science in Poland, it is often still “two worlds”, which have little opportunity to make contacts. Few meetings unite all the expectations of both groups: scientists meet at their conferences that meet the criteria of “scientific” and are included in scientific activities, and entrepreneurs  participate in networking meetings, allowing establish many contacts and quickly assess their business opportunities.

KITS combines the features of a scientific conference (in the form of a poster session), and start-ups (pitching contest and mentoring session), and thus is an opportunity to establish a real relationship between the representatives of the two worlds.
