Innovation & Entrepreneurship

South Poland Cleantech Cluster catalyzes innovation in Southern Poland by increasing the commercialization of new technologies, promoting entrepreneurship, supporting the creation of startups, and stimulating access to risk capital for early-stage enterprises.

SPCleantech links and integrates existing community resources at all levels to create a more robust innovation environment. Through this integration, we are connecting the dots for aspiring entrepreneurs, small- and medium-sized businesses, researchers, and inventors and are working to fill any gaps with transformative programs and resources.  We remove roadblocks and help you build your bridge to success. With the support of our partners and members, we are accelerating South Poland’s transformation to a more knowledge-based economy.

Small firms depend on entrepreneurs – the individuals who have the ideas and are willing to take the risks necessary to get a firm off the ground. South Poland needs more entrepreneurs and our Cluster is looking at ways in which potential entrepreneurs may be encouraged to set up firms.

First, there are cultural factors, which discourage too many people from starting a business. We need to develop a more entrepreneurial culture, starting with young people and from school education. Also there is too often a stigma attached to failure. Second, the administrative requirements – are often a major factor in putting entrepreneurs off. Third, entrepreneurs need to find it easier to attract investors.
