Summary and announcements
As you can see many IT startups made mini-pitches this morning. In addition to these:
On October 1, 2013, Google for Entreprenuers on the Main Market Square will be organizing a Speed Mentoring Session. More information can be found here. Unfortunately, the information is in Polish. You can probably use Google Translate to get a good idea about it.
Innovation Nest announced their Startup Stage event for September 16th at 7pm. (it is a Polish language event) Go to their website for more infromation. While there, it is worth checking out „Office Hours” as well as „Spin School”.
The sectors of the participants weren't as varied as before, but one must be aware that it is the end of holiday season here in Poland. Many people are most-likely trying to end their summer in style by going on one last vacation. Just wait, once autumn rolls around, things will really pick up steam. As promised, I am in the process of doing a lot of the research and travelling all over town in order to be able to provide you a fuller picture of the Krakow Startup Ecosystem. Thank you for reading!
