On the 14th of March 2017, CEO of Quotiss Marcin Zarzecki had a meeting with the President of Poland Andrzej Duda at the Presidential Palace in Warsaw, Poland. They met for the second time within the last 6 months, and again this event draw a lot of attention from the government, state organizations, investment funds and the media. Together, they plan to conduct several state visits later this year in order to straighten the international business and government relationships and networking.
“Startupy w Pałacu” or “Startups at the Palace” is an annual event organized by Startup Poland – an essential link between startups and the government of Poland. The theme of this year’s event was B2B (‘Business to Business’ ) – startups who sell their products and services to other companies rather then consumers directly. Out of 240 applications, only 10 best startups were selected to pitch to the President of Poland Andrzej Duda.
Each startup had their 4 minutes on stage to present the company and business idea to the very high level audience – the President of Poland, the Minister of Economic Development, government officials, investors, angels and other startup related institutions. Full recording of the event is available here (Quotiss presentation starts on 00:32:00).
Each of the 10 startups were awarded with ‘Startup Passport’ – a document which reserves a seat in the Presidential plane going for a state visit to any country which is on the list of the President for the coming year! This award is so unconventionally fabulous, that Quotiss team couldn’t be more excited about the coming business trips!
