Polish startups meet German investors
For the second time young entrepreneurs from Poland and German investors are meeting up in the most open European city and global startup hub – Berlin.
Why to attend at Polish Tech Night?
We invite Polish startups and German investors to show potentials and mutual benefits of the German-Polish cooperation and share experience we already gained in this area. The goal of the first Polish Tech Night in 2016 was to discuss differences and commonalities between the Polish and Berlin startup scenes and to build a bridge between the two.
In the second edition we would like to find our more links between those two neighbored startup scenes and open up new opportunities of cooperations.
About Polish Tech Night
For the second time we invite Polish startups from the ICT industry. Young entrepreneurs from Poland and German investors are meeting up in the most open European city and global startup hub – Berlin!
With around 500 new tech startups per year, Berlin is one of the most important digital hubs for startups. With successful infrastructure for financing and funding, numerous incubators, accelerators and co-working spaces, the city provides optimal conditions for entrepreneurs from around the world. Berlin is the perfect entrance gate to the German market for Polish startups.
Poland became in the last years Berlin’s second-largest sales market. Berlin’s closest neighbor country offers well-trained professionals, a fast-growing tech industry and startup community. Researching the Polish startup community has revealed the general rule that to function effectively in the digital economy, you have to act on a global scale. Over half of Polish startups are exporting, abroad, mainly to the US and UK, and are looking with interest at the German market.

The Future of Digital Work - panel discussion
Automation, digitalization, and plenty of innovations are changing the way we work. There is nothing we knew 10 years ago. Changes are everywhere from the personal attitude (looking for a job that fits our lifestyle), to organizational changes (distributed companies, new ways of managing and communicating within teams and with remote employees), to technological innovations (like AI, AR or Uber model based solutions).
There are plenty of benefits of such a development like improving employees life quality, productivity, and performance. But also an access to the best candidates from all over the world, geo-location is not a limitation anymore. But are there any danger?
