DZP | Future also supports foreign startups. A group of DZP experts has recently taken part in initiatives to support innovative Armenian and Georgian companies. The aim of the meetings was to demonstrate that the Polish business ecosystem is the optimal place to start expanding into EU markets.

During the conference “Business & Investment Opportunities in the Polish and Armenian Startup Ecosystems” organised by the Polish Embassy in Armenia on 15 October 2021 in Yerevan, specialists from the ISTC Foundation, CyHub Armenia, the Warsaw Stock Exchange, Startup HUB Poland and DZP, among others, shared practical tips on business development with Armenian startups. The aim of the event was to encourage creative young Poles and Armenians to cooperate by building partner networks in the two countries. The event was attended by startups, R&D teams, investors, representatives of financial institutions and tax and legal experts, who discussed how startup ecosystems operate and preferences for innovative companies.

Grzegorz Sprawka from the Tax Practice took part in a panel discussion on regulatory aspects of startup operations. He explained to entrepreneurs the tax reliefs and exemptions that are available in Poland for setting up a new or developing an existing business. He also indicated which industries were the most popular at the moment and which of them offered promising chances for success.

During a boot camp held on 2-5 November 2021 in Warsaw as part of the project “Increasing competitiveness of Georgian regions and development of entrepreneurship” implemented by the Polish Agency for Enterprise Development together with the Georgian Agency for Technology and Innovation, we met with twelve outstanding Georgian startups representing the IT/ICT sector. Representatives of the startups asked many questions about promotion, funding opportunities and legal solutions. During numerous meetings and workshops, they shared experiences and could count on advice and proposals for concrete business solutions from experts. DZP lawyers involved in the DZP | Future project: Maciej Zajda, project leader, together with Katarzyna Biarda from the Capital Markets and Financial Institutions Practice and Łukasz Górzny from the Labour Law and Social Security Practice, talked to participants about investment and employment standards and regulations in Poland, which are among the formal foundations for running a startup properly.
