Developing a culture of entrepreneurship in Poland

I was looking for an presentation on an old hard drive and found this – I wrote it in 2008, edited in 2010. There has been a lot of progress in the last 5 years, but much of this is still relevant, and this is a project that will never, ever be over and done with. It’s curious how some of the topics and websites that were relevant back then are just gone now.

Goal 1. Improve school business links in Poland, learning from the experience of Oaklands Secondary School and others. (See Appendix How to run a school-business partnership). Use free of charge open networks like and in Poland and Facebook internationally to encourage alumni of schools and universities to interact with current staff and students

Nasza-Klasa has come from nowhere to being almost the most popular web site in Poland and is obviously an ideal platform on which to launch interaction between schools and their alumni.

“Okrągły stół nauki i Start-Up’ów z NZSem” Niezależne Zrzeszenie Studentów AGH

It has long been a matter of regret that the fabulous engineers of AGH so seldom show up in the pro entrepreneurship and start up community, so hats off to Maciej Tyrała and Monika Wawryniak of the AGH Students’ Association for organising a round table to bring business and technology students together.

I’m doing this summary so the ideas and initiatives are available to a wider world. Here are links to the ideas and projects presented. Apologies for any errors
