How to develop an innovative project into a unicorn or, at least, a prosperous business?

The Start-up Challenge competition accompanying the European Economic Congress might well prove to be an important step towards achieving this goal.

Matching creators of innovative solutions with those looking for inspirations and new investment opportunities remains the mission of this large-scale international platform promoting innovative projects of budding companies.

This year’s edition of Start-up Challenge has seen almost 150 entries in 5 categories. Fifteen best start-ups have made it to the semi-finals and they are going to compete for the award in front of the audience of the largest business event of Central Europe – the European Economic Congress – gathered in the International Congress Centre in Katowice.

Sebastian Kulczyk's InCredibles is the competition's partner. The award is a comprehensive, tailor-made, international mentoring program. Selected winning start-ups will be given the opportunity to take advantage of the proprietary formula of "tailor-made" workshops and individual consultations with mentors, potential clients, investors and recognized business practitioners.

The winners will be selected and awarded during a gala scheduled for 26 April 2022 at 7.30 p.m. on the stage in the Lower Foyer.

Allowed to the gala will be holders of the following badges: VIP, Premium, Media.
