"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.

Workshop INTECH PK – DT Week 2017

 |  Category: Events

SPCleantech participated in the workshop “CaseLab – Laboratory of Good Practices” coorganized with INTECH PK – “How to create your own start-up? Own recipe for success”. Workshop took place at the headquarter of the LifeScience Cluster Foundation in Krakow.

Workshop from the “caseLab – Good Practice” series have taught participants how to transform innovative ideas into products and services in interdisciplinary teams.

The workshop was aimed at students, PhD students interested in market-oriented implementation of their business idea and entrepreneurs seeking to increase their market advantage by implementing innovative solutions, that meet market needs.

Due to the fact that caseLAB is implemented in small groups (up to 20 people), each participant was assured of full participation and gaining practical knowledge.

The training was based on the Design Thinking methodology developed at Stanford University (diagnosing needs and redefining the problem and projection, prototyping and testing solutions) and based on real business cases. The tutors managing the workshop were from a special-purpose company of Cracow University of Technology – INTECH PK.

So far, the caseLAB series has brought many interesting effects. Worked out Concepts: prototypes of reciprocal orthosis, software for building engineers, electric car under the Student Formula or devices for revitalizing air in public facilities.

This time the topic of the workshop was something that INTECH PK experts know best: working on a recipe for their own start-up. In addition, they worked on developing ideas for their own online communication strategy.
