About

During the third edition of Startup Wroclaw: Evolution we focused on expansion into the American market – so called by us ‘American  Dream’. We asked if Wroclaw is a city wherefrom startups can enter and conquer the American market, a place where they can cooperate directly with renowned American companies.

We were honoured by first-rate speakers from Poland and abroad who shared their experience building and developing business in the USA.

 

Startup Wrocław: Evolution, a big business event that connects startups, innovators, investors and professionals  from technology and creative industry. 

The conference is an opportunity to show business from various perspectives. We discuss about good practices in building and developing a company or products and exchange knowledge about acquiring new customers and fostering relationships with the current ones.
