Statements of experts regarding the report
"I would emphasize the global aspects. The key element for a local market like Poland is the ability to scale these innovations. I think if we look at them in terms of technology, their regionalization is secondary. In fact, a good local IT market is one that doesn't prevent innovations from being available globally."
Business Development Director Cloudity
"In the Polish innovation market, we can distinguish clusters in which we are relatively strong. This is primarily gaming and broadly defined IT software. Companies developing software in the SaaS model and marketplaces are successful. Most Polish Venture Capital funds invest in these areas."
Partner Movens VC
"It is also worth taking the help of a market expert, [...] who will tell you about the real problems occurring among the potential customers of the solution offered by the creator of the innovation, which will allow you to tailor appropriate content to meet the needs of customers."
CEO & Co-founder Growdcode
"The Polish innovation financing market is still in its early stages of development. In 2021 we witnessed record amounts of financing flowing from Venture Capital as well as in crowdfunding. The dynamics of their growth is very high, but still nominally these values do not match Western markets."
Vice President of Forc.ee
"Project teams face huge problems in obtaining funding from various sources. Often VCs want to invest in finished products that require a lot of funding, which the creators don't have. From my conversations with creators, it seems that with an MVP in place, they don't really have a chance for funding, which effectively discourages them from further work."
