A book promotion event of “The Talent Olympics in Silicon Valley”
October 14, 2015
The US-Polish Trade Council kindly invites you to a book promotion event of ”The Talent Olympics in Silicon Valley” presented by Marta Zucker and Magdalena Bryzek.
This book was inspired by the compelling stories of this generation’s courageous entrepreneurs who seek more than business success — they seek to change the world. Our subjects dream boldly; their ideas and imagination leap far beyond today’s constraints to build tomorrow’s successes. Many companies in the technology boom have grown rapidly from an initial seed investment to valuations of tens or hundreds of millions – or even billions – of dollars. This book examines a few of the most promising Polish candidates for such success.
The last four years have seen major developments in the Polish startup community with more and more founders reaching beyond Poland to the global market. With each new Polish start-up that succeeds, the network of international connections – centered with the new economy, in Silicon Valley – will grow. Bridges between the new Polish economy and Silicon Valley are being built today, setting the stage for Polish entrepreneurs to take their place on the world’s stage.
We asked our protagonists to tell their stories of their success. We introduce to you six technology daredevils with the potential to change our reality.
