Poland is supporting the setting up of spin-off companies with tailored training to match promising ideas

In Poland, inhabitants of the Warmia and Mazuria regions who are interested in starting their own spin-off company are being invited to get some training first – and thus enhance their chances of success. Run by the Nowe Media Foundation, the project targets graduates, students and university staff with promising ideas. It aims to combine these ideas with new business skills and thus help the participants attract investors. Overall, 20 participants will receive support in innovation incubators based throughout Poland, after which they will be helped with commercial, patent and legal matters, as well as contacts with Business Angel networks and investment funds.
