Wroclaw took over Poznan and Krakow in the ranking of September 26, "Cities attractive for business" prepared by Forbes.pl, together with the Central Economic Information Centre.
The ranking is based, among others, on the increase rate in the number of companies per 1,000 inhabitants, but not exclusively. In their search for answers how an attractive climate for business is created, Forbes took into account, e.g. the number and type of programs of cooperation with universities, local ways to facilitate starting or running a business, the availability and the number of places in coworking offices run and managed by the city and the local government, the number of training programs, the support programs for companies in their early stage of development and assistance in obtaining financing.
Forbes.pl emphasizes that the basis of value creation for the development of entrepreneurship for all large agglomerations is the business collaboration with academia. The magazine quotes Rafal Dutkiewicz, president of Wrocław, who said that the city was the first in Poland to have created a special department in the City Office - Wroclaw Academic Hub - which monitors the labour market and curricula, and is responsible for combining business with academic institutions. This gives a basis for proposing system solutions, such as e.g. Project "Mozart", aimed at solving the problems that companies recruiting young people in Wroclaw encounter, and also to take under the city's wing the promising startups, which in the future will determine the city's position on the Polish map of entrepreneurship, writes Forbes.pl.
