Discovering Innovators – University Roadshow in Cracow!


Innovators make a few percent of the society. It means that only in Cracow there might be even 70 thousand great ideas which are waiting for someone who knows how to put them into life wisely. On 21st May University Roadshow organized by Globe Forum in cooperation with The National Centre for Research and Development and AGH University of Science and Technology will come to Cracow to look for brave concepts which can change our future.

The Sphere Roadshow will be standing on the area of AGH University. University Roadshow is a series of meetings with investment advisors and technology experts with innovators and entrepreneurs. We are looking for promising ideas for business which may result in founding a thriving modern company. The beginner Bill Gates or Steve Jobs will get a substantive support from us and if their plan is well-thought-out, mature and ready to be realized, we will invest money in it. We visit selected university sites in Poland. To the next Roadshow stop we are inviting those who want to consult their new service, invention or technical solution with us or respond to a particular challenge the local community is facing. The most interesting ideas and projects will be presented during the conference Globe Forum combined with Congree of Innovative Economy.

On 21st May 2015 in the Sphere in AGH University we will prepare a place with many experts of new technologies and specialists of venture capital. The originator will be able to consult their idea with the representatives of XPLORER who have the knowledge to support the author and the money to invest in the undertaking. We prepared workshops, competitions carried out by representatives of well-known concerns for entrepreneurs, ambitious students and fans of creative solutions.

Microsoft will organize a game on the wall Knoocker (financial project Imagine Cup 2014). The winners of the virtual competition using real balls will receive special vouchers to access application Microsoft Azure. We will hand out 19 thousand zloties in each city in total! Orange Polska will be waiting for every ambitious student. Everyone interested will be able to get to know about their acceleration programme, Imagine with Orange initiative and a contest BIHAPI. There is also a workshop prepared by hub:raum “Start-up – from idea to realization. Go global or go home.”  carried out by Filip Dębowski i Łukasz Cieśla.

After a preliminary assessment of submissions we will invite authors of the most interesting projects and ideas to open consultations with Xplorer investment fund experts.
