For an ever-growing group of Polish companies and institutions, the word "innovation" ceases to be just a fashionable slogan and becomes a fact. This is due to the support of the National Centre for Research and Development (NCBR), an executive agency of the Minister of Science and Higher Education, which co-finances innovative projects with market potential conducted by scientists and entrepreneurs. The agency supports innovators at all stages of project implementation, helping "from idea to industry". By "insuring" the risk related to conducting R&D works, it enables to start or continue innovative projects, thanks to which entrepreneurs build their competitive advantage, while end-users stand a chance to use ever better products and services adapted to their needs.
And there we have it. Another edition of Wolves Summit has come to an end. For the 7th time, we had a great opportunity and a pleasure to invite to Poland the representatives of international and polish corporations, investors and startups to enable them to #create #network and #grow . This time we had two events for our incredible participants:
Wolves Hardware and R&D and Wolves Summit.
Since the very beginning of Wolves Summit, our mission was to set up a platform that would help in creating relevant business connections worldwide. This is why, we are very happy and proud to share this years edition results in numbers (Wolves Hardware and R&D and Wolves Summit together)
As another year approaches, investors usually dig into conference calendars in search of most valuable events to attend the following 12 months. To achieve the best results, they need to think about a proper preparation beforehand, perfect execution during, and correct summary after the event. What are the top hints to consider when planning a fruitful business trip to a conference?
The conference sprint is pretty exhausting, but can give you more contacts and prospect clients, than you can imagine. If you don’t know how to use the event to the maximum, keep reading. If you do, keep reading anyway. There’s a step-by-step guide for you.
Introducing innovation to your company is not a one-time offer for startups to hop in, do the job, leave, and you’re good for the next 20 years. It’s a long-term process that must be implemented in a corporation for good. And here’s why.
What’s the actual number of closing clients out of all phone calls you and your team make? What’s the conversion?
It is always a surprise when a startup declines an investment offer, even if it’s a tempting one. What drives such decisions and can you, as an investor, prevent them from happening?
Just think about how unfair it is. As a startup you have a good product, you know there’s demand on the market, and yet, no one wants to invest. What could you possibly be doing wrong? Well, think about the talking.
Corporate Venture Capital (CVC) may seem like a distant perspective for startup companies, especially compared to private VC funds or Business Angels. There are, however, a few paths of carrying out successful startup-corporation cooperation, without much damage to any of these parties.
