In 16-17 January 2017 we took part in study visit to Israel. The event was organised by the Chancellery of the President of Poland, who invited several startups to accompany the President during his stay in Israel. We had an opportunity to get familiar with Israeli startup ecosystem by taking part in the conference "Poland's Ecoststem - Give it a Try!", meet some venture capitals (Pitango VC) or pay a visit to local accelerators (RISE and StartTAU in Tel-Aviv, Masschallenge Israel, JNext High-Tech and Entrepreneurship Program in Jerusalem). Though the visit was short, we brought a lot of contacts and positive ideas for the future.

We are proud to inform that NEXBIO was nominated for Central European Startup Awards in category 'Startup of the Year by SAP'! The contest divided into 12 categories is dedicated to the startups and business environment institutions from ten Central and Eastern European countries.

Polish voting ends on 18 October - we will appreciate your support!
We had a great honour to find ourselves among ten Polish startups who presented their pitches in the Presidential Palace in front of Poland's President Andrzej Duda, members of parliament, Diplomatic Corps, state-owned companies' and Venture Capitals' boards members and Business Angels. The event titled "Startups in the Palace" took place on 13 September 2016 and was co-organized by Startup Poland Foundation and Chancellery of President.
Except an invitation there was an additional award - a "passport" that entitled us to be among the participants in one of the Presidential foreign visits. That would help us to promote out innovative project abroad. We are truly honoured and we hope that the excellent idea that supports startup environment at such high level will be continued.
