How does my legal partner work?


The Innovations Hub Foundation's Mentoring Programme offers a space that connects young, ambitious entrepreneurs and students who want to enter the startup environment with experienced mentors supporting the preparation of the most promising projects. In the Programme, participants are given the opportunity to develop and validate their idea, and to learn about investment, running a startup and raising financing.

The Programme features three categories in which participants prepare contest projects:

  • InnovateIT for startups proposing solutions in cybersecurity, blockchain technology, cloud computing and artificial intelligence.
  • MedBiz for innovative solutions in healthcare and those focusing on biotechnology, veterinary medicine and 3D bioprinting.
  • Green Innovations for projects focusing on environmental protection and sustainability issues.

DZP is a content partner of this year's Programme. The project leader at DZP was Maciej Zajda, a VC expert involved in the DZP Future programme connecting promising startups with investors and funds. DZP lawyers provided legal support to Programme participants through consultations at the project planning stage on, e.g. raising financing, regulatory requirements specific to the startup's area of operation and further development of the initiative. The following DZP lawyers were also involved in the programme: Katarzyna Wójcik from the Capital Markets & Financial Institutions Practice, Karolina Kulikowska-Gruszecka, Martyna Gruszka and Michał Nita from the IP&TMT Practice, Daniel Chojnacki from the Environmental Protection Team and Marek Paluch, Magdalena Wojtkowiak and Dagmara Lukosek from the Life Sciences Practice.

Several months' work by the young founders will culminate in a final, to which the committee, based on investment documents and pitch, will qualify the best teams, who will have the opportunity to present their projects at a final gala scheduled for 21 June. The jury will also select the winning team and the winners of the Programme.

Details of the Programme are available on the organiser's website.
