Startup Heroes

Together with the Olsztyn Science and Technology Park, we launch the second edition of the Start Platforms for new ideas „STARTUP HEROES”! If you have a great business idea, entrepreneurial spirit, open mind and want to go from plans to action – this project is just for you!

The assumption of the project is to create conditions for the development of start-ups and commercialization of their ideas. As part of the STARTUP HEROES project, we will launch a package of expert services, among others in the field of law, patent protection and marketing. As in the previous edition of the project, this time each start-up will have its manager supervising the proper course of the incubation. After completing the incubation process, project participants will be able to obtain recommendations for submitting an application for Sub-measure 1.1.2 of the POPW, in which it will be possible to obtain measurable non-returnable financial support for the development of the company in the amount of up to PLN 800,000. The unique advantage of the project is a large group of partners substantively supporting the incubation process.

The STARTUP HEROES project will consist of 6 six-month incubation cycles, preceded by a 3-month recruitment for each subsequent cycle. The recruitment runs from January 1 to March 31, 2019 and will end with a panel of experts who will decide to qualify for the project. The first incubation season will start on April 1 and will continue until September 30, 2019. Below is the schedule of subsequent recruitment and incubation cycles:

01/03/2019 – I recruitment; 1.04.-30/09/2019 – The first incubation cycle

10-12.2019 – II recruitment; 1.01-30.06.2020 – II incubation cycle

07/09/2020 – third call; 1.10.2020-31.03.2021 – III incubation cycle
