organizes the next regular meeting

"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.

South Poland Cleantech Cluster and networks in which we participate play an important role as generators of growth and innovation in the region. In projects and consortiums SPCleantech as cluster can play different roles depending on projects and focus area it covers.

Driver           SPCleantech drives processes and cluster organization takes an active executive role in initiatives and projects. Cluster is responsible for the creation of a consortium, preparation of an application for funding, execution and settlement of the project. Cluster acts as project manager and secretariat, organizes steering committee meetings, partner meetings and planning sessions.

Partner         SPCleantech participates in the process and can participate as a partner in initiatives and consortium in the project, but the cluster organization is not the prime and main partner in the project

Facilitator    SPCleantech facilitates contact between potential partners, but cluster organization does not participate actively in subsequent initiatives / projects. Members can get assigned a key-account manager from the cluster, which can keep an eye on the needs of members, invite to networking meetings, match-making and project meetings, so as to create new business opportunities between members and develop new projects between and for members.

In order to participate in the projects you have to be member of South Poland Cleantech Cluster.
