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.
