COBCOE’s First Call!

Join COBCOE’s First Call! programme and tap into a new pipeline of potential business from the UK

As a BPCC member, your firm is well able to assist companies from the UK to navigate the Polish market. The COBCOE First Call! programme was created to ensure that more business from UK companies comes your way, by channelling inbound enquiries through the British chamber in the relevant market. 

This new pipeline of potential business will create extra value for your membership of the BPCC - itself a member of COBCOE.

To tap into this potential business, all you need to do is to express your willingness and ability, and sign up to the COBCOE First Call! programme. In return, you will agree to provide up to one hour of free advice to a British business based in the UK to help it assess relevant market opportunities.

There are six types of advice a British company will be looking for:

  • Legal framework for trade and investment

  • Accounting and tax

  • Location, relocation and property

  • Staff recruitment

  • Business development services

  • Localisation and translation services
