Located on the eastern edge of the soon-to-be-opened Koneser urban renewal scheme in Praga, Campus Warsaw recently hosted three major startup events. Poland Today was delighted to support all three – but first a quick Q&A with Rafał Plutecki, Head of Campus Warsaw and tech entrepreneur.
For every city it is critical to support startups, founded by visionary entrepreneurs – their successes will be key to the success of the city in the coming decades. And it is exactly Campus Warsaw’s mission as well: to identify the potential for development and support entrepreneurs at these moments of growth. Similarly, it’s the reason why we decided to locate this investment here – because of Warsaw’s enormous potential as the startup hub for Central and Eastern Europe. Campus Warsaw was the 2nd Campus to open in Europe, after London, out of the network of six Google Campuses across the globe.
We invite all globally-minded entrepreneurs from across Central and Eastern Europe that can join any of the multiple startup programs we run. We support founders at different stages and the first thing we do is to match an entrepreneur or a startup with one of our programs such as Startup Weekend, Launchpad Start and Campus Residency. Last year at Campus Warsaw we hosted 20,000 attendees at 400 education events, workshops and mentoring sessions. We hope our efforts will translate into many success stories over the coming years.
