networking for Start-ups
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.

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.

Our technology or business matchmaking events, activities and related initiatives provide innovators with the opportunity to gather and exchange information, network with and source potential partners, customers or prospective employees, promote their research, organization or innovation interests and discuss collaborative R&D or business projects.

If you own a small business, networking can be an inexpensive way to promote your business. Through networking, you can discover new opportunities, build your customer base and find new suppliers and staff. You may also find investors and business partners.

Networking options are broad and continually changing. South Poland Cleantech Cluster will show you how to research networking trends to work out which ones best suit your business.

Our matchmaking and network activities will contain:

  1. Conferences and events
    SPCleantech will help you in regular attending breakfasts, seminars, lectures and lunches that are held by various groups.
