Growing Community since 2012
Polish entrepreneurs have rapidly established themselves across the UK in the ten years since Poland joined the EU. Today, more than 21,000 Poles have set up nearly 22,000 companies in the UK, while another 65,000 Poles are self-employed. According to research by the Centre for Entrepreneurs think tank and financial technology company, DueDil, Poles are the sixth largest nationality to set up businesses in the UK, behind Ireland, India or USA, but ahead of France, Italy, Australia or Holland.
As the Polish community in the UK showed an enormous interest in issues connected with running a business in the UK, so there appeared the idea of creating a place where their needs could be met: a place where entrepreneurs seeking new business partners, franchisees, distributors, investors or people willing to set up a business in the UK could meet, talk and exchange views.
2012 - FIRST EVENTThe idea was developed in late 2012 in Edinburgh. The first event took place in the Royal Society of Edinburgh attracting over 100 entrepreneurs.
