We will set up your growth path in Poland
Together with our international mentors we will give you the best advice on how to expand to Poland and hire the most talented people for you. We will also use our connections with corporate partners so that you will get a chance to run a pilot.
STARTUPS AND CORPORATIONS
We will design an end to end open innovation program
World does not stop and corporations need to adjust to the fast-changing environment but having their long-term strategies in mind. We will help them achieving these goals by matching startups with the most advanced technology that meets corporate goals and objectives.

I moved to Poland to validate the potential of the market. Currently, I am hiring a country manager and if everything works out, Poland will be one of the central hubs for Dabbel from where the global business by the core team will be run.

Our first Polish connection point was with PSG in Poland for whom we did a paid proof of concept during our Startup Hub: Poland Prize acceleration time. Currently, we are participating in a GovTec tender with Tauron and have this week signed a Memorandum of understanding with Microsoft Poland.

Poland is the strategic market for Orocon. I see that the level of digitalization is growing here and I think this is the right moment to strike. My plan is to make Poland the base for experimentations to improve the quality of Orocon’s solution.

There are two factors that helped Startup Hub Poland convince me to come to Poland. Firstly, corporations that are willing to experiment with startups on hi-tech projects in IoT sectors. The second aspect is the location. I am planning to move my operational center from Silicon Valley and Poland seems to be the best place to make a hub of the CEE operations.
Balaji Renukumar, CEO of Sensfix
To be honest, a few months ago we did not have a lot of knowledge about the Polish market. But when we came here for Startup Hub: Poland Prize we were surprised how fast the country is growing, how big the real estate market is. We are also astonished about how open and goal-oriented business thinking is in Poland.
Andreas Lovrec, Account Manager of Housebook
Before Poland, we had several options: to stay back in the US or to go to South Korea and Germany. Due to the very high setup costs, I decided to go to Poland. I assumed that this is a developed country that focuses on improving the standards in the market especially in terms of customer service. Now I working on the legal paperwork to move my company to Poland.
