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.
