It’s time to summarize the “Pre-Acceleration Point workshop for start-ups and SMEs”! South Poland Cleantech Cluster has already organized the last workshop “Pre-Acceleration Point for start-ups and SMEs” as part of the project “Małopolska – Tu technology becomes business” with the financial support of the Malopolska Voivodship.

The theme of a series of 4 workshops were various aspects of Start-up activities and SMEs at a very early stage in the process of building a successful company and hence the name of the cycle “How to build a successful start-up?”. At the beginning of the workshop, the lecturer presented theoretical knowledge on a selected topic, and then, with the support of mentors, we went to the practical part of the workshop. During the last workshop, participants created their own business models based on the Business Model Canvas model.

The workshop mentors were Konrad Szczypczyk – consultant, mentor, Business Angel, Christo Balinow – consultant, CEO at KIC InnoEnergy responsible for Central and Eastern Europe and Michał Adamczyk – President The board of the foundation “Krakow City of Startups”, where he is responsible, among others for the acceleration program for technology start-ups at the initial stage of development.

Thanks to everyone who was from South Poland Cleantech Cluster when creating this event! We hope that the workshop will remain in your memory as an interesting and worth participating experience!

On our part, it was a successful four workshop meetings during which we had many conversations, exchanged experience and met a lot of smart and inspiring people!
