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
