Café for Start-ups-Traction

 |  Category: SPCleantech News

On Thursday, 16.02.2017 SPCleantech organized in collaboration with Pre Acceleration Point, the NordicHouse Café, an informal meeting place for networking for start-ups. These regular meetings in the form of informal networking meetings are a continuation of workshops for Start-ups and 2 conferences organized in cooperation with the NordicHouse and KIC InnoEnergy.

The networking meeting took place at the seat of SPCleantech, NordicHouse, ul. św. Anny 5 in Krakow.

The main theme of the event was “How to give a “kick” to your Start-up. What is traction?”

“Start-up is a company designed for rapid growth. The fact that the company has recently been established, does not make it a start-up. Start-up does not have to work in the technology industry, benefit from the VC investment or have a specific exit strategy. The only important feature is growth. Everything else that we associate with start-ups, is due to growth “- Paul Graham
Traction is growth.
The desire to get traction defines Start-ups.

Our special guest this time was Piotr Przewrocki, mentor, investor – QBN Seed Fund

NordicHouse Café is:

  • informal meeting place for start-ups in all phases of activity – here you will spend the evening in a relaxed atmosphere in the company of other start-ups, mentors or investors
  • you have an idea for a start-up, but do not know how to implement it – others more experienced will advise you how to do it
  • you lack a partner, investor or mentor – maybe you can find them here

Business cards, brochures or other promotional materials were exchanged during the event.
