The European Start-up Days are a special event accompanying the 9th European Economic Congress, which brings young businesses and large enterprises together.
Chairmen of the board and managers of the largest enterprises have already confirmed their participation in this year’s two-day conference intended for start-ups. The ideas for business that will be presented to them can mark the beginning of great careers.
‘The European Start-up Days are a bit like the start-ups themselves – you can make plans and unfold your visions, but it is practice that will verify the value of your project. And the last year’s meeting – the largest event of this type in our part of Europe, which had arranged relations between the dynamic and creative group of young entrepreneurs and the representatives of the already mature business – exceeded not only our own expectations.’
‘Thanks to the European Start-up Days my business has accelerated,’ said one of the start-up owners. ‘It is worth looking for one’s investment opportunity this year, too, or even just looking closely at the variety of products and services that Polish start-ups can offer,’ said Wojciech Kuśpik, Organiser of the ESD and Chairman of the Board of the PTWP SA Group.
Guests that have announced their participation in the second edition of the European Start-up Days include Maroš Šefčovič, Vice-President of the European Commission in charge of the Energy Union, and Jarosław Gowin, Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of Poland and Minister of Science and Higher Education. The event will also be attended by numerous representatives of business.
Anyone who wants to present their start-up in front of the audience of the European Start-up Days can enter the Start-up Challenge competition. The organisers have extended the time limit for submitting innovative and creative projects until 26 April 2017.
The European Start-up Days will take place in Katowice on 11–12 May 2017.
