You will learn the art of pitching during our next workshop. The mentor will not only provide potential entrepreneurs with various technical skills, but also strengthen their entrepreneurial mindset.

The mentor during the workshop will be Christo Balinow, InnoEnergy's Business Development Director for CEE, Middle East and North America.

Matchmaking & B2B Networks

South Poland Cleantech Cluster connects through the process of matchmaking companies with complementary R&D, technology or business strengths that aim to explore opportunities for mutually beneficial R&D collaboration or business partnerships.
