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

SPCleantech’s president, Janusz Kahl, has focused in his speach on creativity, which is the basis for inventing any innovative solutions.

The theme of the speech was:

“Unleash your creativity. What is lateral thinking?
We are so taught that we seek the answer, going the shortest path. Solving problems, the mind uses the experience gained earlier. This is the right thing to do, but it has little to do with creativity. Instead of using elaborate and proven logic schemes based on logical thinking, it is worthwhile to step aside for a moment, reverse the problem, or focus on the seemingly obvious element of the puzzle. Resigning from linear, vertical thinking is a simple way to awaken creativity. It is not easy to switch from vertical to lateral thinking, but when you try, good ideas will come to your mind.
