Description

PRO-ENTERPRISE MEETUPS WHERE STUDENTS IN KRAKÓW MEET ENTREPRENEURS AND ALUMNI WHO HAVE GONE INTO BUSINESS IN A FRIENDLY INFORMAL SETTING

Our website is here.

Goal

The main goal is to inspire students to think about entrepreneurship as a choice, educate them, help to understand world of business and be accessible to them so that they can ask you questions and get your feedback.

Why?

Alumni who have gone into business are not enough actively engaged in supporting enterprise among current students. Many existing students are not aware of the opportunities that enterprise offers, careers available in Startups and the support available.

For who?

1. Students who want to start a business (or are thinking about it in future) and want to meet people who have gone into business
2. Entrepreneurs who want to help, meet pro enterprise students
3. Anyone else interested in enterprise and business or just curious

Invited Speakers:

Awesome speakers

What does a typical event look like?

1. Icebreaker games and integration activities to help those attending meet people and make contacts
2. Short (5-10 minute) presentations by entrepreneurs to a format with time for questions. We aim to have one experienced entrepreneur, one more recent one, and a representative of an NGO or other type of social or community entrepreneur.
3. “Office hours” desks where speakers give 1 on 1 feedback to students who have business ideas or other questions
4. Open Mike and Community Announcements

CAN I PRESENT SOMETHING DURING OPEN MIKE?

People who want to pitch their business ideas are encouraged to do so - just contact us ahead of time.
Entrepreneurial artists and entertainers who want to try to show/perform (maybe sell) to our audience can offer to do Open Mic performances


OUR GOALS?

1. To facilitate and encourage transfer of know how and capital from successful business people among the alumni of Polish Universities to current students who are interested in entrepreneurship.
2. To give current students access to role models among entrepreneurial alumni who can help transmit the message that business success is possible.
3. To celebrate the business success of alumni and the sense that the current generation of students (and maybe official University organs), appreciate and value entrepreneurial success.
4. To encourage existing university alumni associations to include entrepreneurship support in their activities.
5. To provide a business friendly environment, where students from different universities in Krakow can meet, get to know each other and develop their networks.
6. To encourage Student Societies to support business and social entrepreneurship among their members.

Where does the idea come from?

The concept is loosely based on: Cambridge University's Enterprise Tuesdays, Open Coffee Kraków, We also aim to learn the lessons of numerous other events and aim to apply best practice in terms of time keeping, avoiding long boring speeches, and given all attendees the best possible experience from before they arrive until after they leave.

WHY ENGLISH?

We will be friendly to both Polish and English speakers, but suggest English is a better language for ambitious entrepreneurs. We are both pro-Polish and welcoming to foreigners. If an English language meeting makes some people feel uncomfortable, we are sorry, but deep down we hope that discomfort motivates people to improve your English. It will improve their chances of having a successful and productive life.

As Willy Brandt famously said: "If I am selling to you, I speak your language. If I am buying, dann müssen Sie Deutsch sprechen.
