Another edition of “My Business Abroad” successfully completed
The workshop was attended by representatives of Polish companies from many different branches of the economy – the food industry, children’s products, the cosmetics industry, renewable energy, waste processing and others. During the five days of meetings, entrepreneurs participated in a series of lectures on a number of legal, economic, marketing and image issues related to export. They also learned about the aspects of creating an export strategy and running e-commerce on foreign markets.
Participants also took part in individual mentoring sessions, as well as networking and matchmaking. During the meetings for entrepreneurs, there was also the possibility of making contact with representatives of selected PAIH foreign trade offices, with whom they had the opportunity to talk about the export potential of their products and services on selected markets.
As part of the My Business Abroad project, advice was also provided by representatives of other entities, including the Polish Development Fund, KUKE, Bank Gospodarstwa Krajowego, the Patent Office of the Republic of Poland, the Industrial Development Agency, the Polish Agency for Enterprise Development, the Polish Chamber of Commerce and the Trade.gov.pl portal. The participants’ questions were answered by PAIH’s experts implementing the Polish Technological Bridges program, which supports the expansion of companies into non-European markets.
