We invite startups to Karpacz. „Climb the peak!"

We invite startups, young entrepreneurs and innovators for the 3rd Industry Forum, which will be held in Karpacz, 8-10 December 2017.

During the conference startups will have the opportunity to:

  • Make your pitch before guests and experts
  • win participation in the Startup Session at the XXVIII Economic Forum in Krynica in 2018
  • display their product or service at their own stands
  • meet CEOs of the largest Polish and foreign companies, politicians, innovators and experts
  • present their achievements and solutions to potential business partners
  • consolidate already existing relationships as well as gain interesting experiences and knowledge during the panels and accompanying events

Last year’s Industrial Forum in Karpacz was attended by startups that operate in different business models and offer a wide range of services and products. The conference was attended among others by startup Footsteps, which creates a mobile application and a travel platform:

“Participation in the Industry Forum is primarily an opportunity to establish new contacts with representatives of the largest business in Poland. Interestingly, these companies are very open to innovations and are looking for a startup competency in the market to implement such solutions, because using their own resources is most often expensive and time consuming. Last year during the Forum we managed to get to several new big customers, which is really great value for our company,” says Piotr Sędzik, CEO Footsteps, who will also attend the Forum in Krapacz this year.

During the Industry Forum, Startup Session will be held, where young entrepreneurs will be able to win the participation in the elite Startup Session at the XXVIII Economic Forum in Krynica in 2018 – the largest international conference in our part of Europe. During this year’s Forum in Krynica, the first edition of this event was held. The Startup Session is meant to be a place where big businesses meet startups from Central and Eastern Europe.

“Participating in the Startup Session at the Krynica Economic Forum gave us the unique opportunity to present our project to the distinguished Expert Committee and to gather extremely valuable comments from people with tremendous experience in business and management. Knowledge, experience, new contacts, but also build confidence and belief that we are a great team of innovative Polish product – we went back to Krakow from Krynica!,” says Dominik Stasiak from Sinterit.
