The 2015 Congress of Polish Entrepreneurs in the United Kingdom

The Second Congress of Polish Entrepreneurs in the United Kingdom will take place in October 2015.
Polish entrepreneurs will meet again in London to share their experience of running their businesses in the UK, and also to make new contacts and gain further business knowledge.

Congress is organised by the British-Polish Chamber of Commerce and Polish Business Link. Both organisations operate towards the development of Polish entrepreneurs running their businesses in the UK market. This Congress is a response to the increasing business activity of our fellow countrymen who are more and more keen on completing projects in the foreign market and achieve more successes every year. Polish entrepreneurs are substantially determined in their activities and are constantly looking to develop and expand their knowledge. This was proven following the excellent turn up at the first Congress.

This year’s agenda will include the following aspects: Innovation or stagnation? How to become an innovative entrepreneur? How to finance innovative projects? The Organisers will run a Business Clinic which will cover sales, quotes and taxes. British exporters who are interested in the Polish market will be invited to the section: Innovative Poland. Part of the programme will traditionally include case study session of Polish entrepreneurs and networking session.
