Meet the Founder

Anna & Bart_126

Founder, Multi-Entrepreneur, Networking Champion, Community Builder

PBLINK was founded by Bart Kowalczyk in 2012, having experienced first-hand the power of an active, engaged, and inspired business community. Originally from Poland, but Scottish in spirit, Bart moved to the UK in 2006 – and knew how important connecting with other entrepreneurs would be. As a business owner, Bart knew that your network really could be your net worth.  Over time, he forged so many meaningful connections with similar professionals that creating PBLINK was simply the next natural step. More than a membership body, PBLINK is a testament to the power of community and the spirit of collaboration. Connect with Bart on LinkedIn

GoTech Poland Forum

GoTech Poland Forum

This annual event aims to explore new opportunities arising from British-Polish partnerships – be it setting up tech hubs in Poland, outsourcing, full remote work, opportunities in public procurement, R&D, or optimising cross-border tech sales. Aimed at CIOs and CTOs from across all sectors of industry and commerce in both countries, the event will offer fresh insight into the forces shaping the tech markets in Poland and their implications for the UK tech sector.
