Poland is a place where many startups are created and they are sucessful both in Poland and abroad. Ideas of Polish entrepreneurs attract funding on Kickstarter platform and win international competitions. Institute recognises potential and role of startups in development of innovativenss, that is why we invite representatives of this segment to take part in our events. We described role of startups in our report "Innovations 2015", and we are also authors of the report "Startups in Poland 2014 Report". We cooperate with startup community Business Link. We were also partners of the debate "Socially responsible Start-up – examples from Poland and Israel".
