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

The aim of the project, whose full name is “Improving energy efficiency through renovation”, is to help local governments to improve the energy efficiency of public buildings by designing a model “path for energy renovation of buildings” (GLV), including model solutions for planning, implementation and monitoring renovation works carried out in buildings belonging to the city / commune, as well as involving key stakeholders in the process.

The meeting was devoted to good practices in the field of energy renovation of public buildings and the Action Plan defining measures to improve and improve selected support instruments for this type of investment. In the afternoon part of the meeting, a study visit to Niepołomice was planned, which was an opportunity to get acquainted with the municipality’s activities in the field of energy efficiency and renewable energy sources.
