The most important technology think-tank in Central Europe
We represent Polish startups in dialogue with the Polish government and parliament,
The European Commission and local governments. We connect startups with clients and investors.
One of the main pillars of Startup Poland's activities as a think tank which represents the voice of Polish startups, is public policy. At first glance the legislation that is created whether in Warsaw or Brussels does not affect startups, but unfortunately, after a closer look at the proposals for changes in legislation, it turns out that there may be further barriers or the need for additional obligations that no one considered when setting up startup (or investing in one). That's why we are trying to highlight important issues for the EU’s digital ecosystem, which is why we are presenting this report on net neutrality and its impact on startups.
It is time for another instalment of the "Polish Startups" report, which is a kind of summary of the passing year in terms of the condition of the Polish startup ecosystem. This year's - already the eighth - edition is another one which is being created at the time of crisis, or rather, several crises occurring simultaneously. Unfortunately, while the pandemic was an impulse for faster development of the startup sector, the current crises have or may have a negative impact on the mood of young technology companies. What does the future hold for Polish startups? What can be done to keep them growing? The "Polish Startups" report with conclusions and recommendations on the subject can be downloaded for free from our website as a PDF.
Startup Poland - together with European organisations representing startups - has presented its position on the EU regulation on artificial intelligence adopted by the European Parliament on 14 June this year. This is the world's first comprehensive law regulating AI technology. The next legislative stage is negotiations with member states on the final shape of the legislation. Startup Poland - together with its partner organisations from across the EU - is reminding European politicians of the key demands that need to be addressed in the AI Act so that the law responsibly supports the development of innovation related to the use of AI technology in the European Union.READ MORE
