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

International Outreach

SPCleantech is working actively to cooperate with international expertise and networks. The challenge of globalization includes a change towards more open, networked and international ways of organizing innovation processes.

We develop constantly with the purposes of improving excellence in cluster development and creating bridges and channels for cluster company’s internationalization efforts.

All cleantech clusters are faced with an increasing request from cluster companies to improve business access to “nearby markets” i.e. within EU. Thus cluster-to-cluster cooperation with the objective to facilitate business-tobusinesscooperation and trade within EU is much in demand on the side ofbusiness.

Another point of departure for cooperation is benchmarking activities that by comparing cleantech cluster best practices within the EU will support the cleantech cluster organizations to deliver improved business development services. Various clusters have different sets of uniqueness. Some are strong in entrepreneurship, others in match-making, othersin demonstration and solutions and yet others in testing and simulation. Sharing knowledge and experiences will build competitiveness across clusters.

SPCleantech has the ability to connect regional cleantech companies with the global marketplace. By connecting key cleantech players across sectors, clusters can initiate and facilitate new innovations through partnerships.

That’s why SPCleantech continues to enhance its membership with numerous international organizations in order to further establish an international presence.

We utilize our international access to accelerate the global market opportunities for our member companies.

Using SPCleantech as a doorway simply makes international collaboration, investments and export easier and expands our companies reach.
