Why Poland

Kraków - Technology ParkKraków - Technology Park

Małopolska is a region in southern Poland, which for years, has been at the forefront of the most attractive voivodeships for both Polish and foreign investors. The region is perfectly connected with the rest of Poland and Europe, thanks to the constantly developing Kraków-Balice airport, the A4 motorway and the main S7 road. A fast pace of economic development, numerous business support institutions and the good transport infrastructure, are just some of the reasons why leading global companies have decided to invest here. The investment potential of the region has also been appreciated in prestigious European competitions: Małopolska received, among other titles, that of The European Region of Entrepreneurship and took 1st place in the international competition RegioStars 2016.
