Polish Ambassadors of Innovation
During the virtual conference, an API Awards ceremony for Polish Innovation Ambassadors will also be held, with the aim of recognizing people of Polish origin who are promoting Poland internationally through their activities in the innovation and technology sector. Previous edition winners include, among others, Tomasz Bagiński (Platige Image, executive producer of the Netflix original series “The Witcher”), Rafał Brzoska (Inpost), Katarzyna Hess-Wiktor (Minnity), and Agata Zborowska (Conception X) , and Rafał Modrzewski (ICEYE).
This year the award was given in three categories – API Rising Star, API Scientific Research and API Business Leader. How are the winners selected? First, the nominees will be selected by the PLUGin Foundation in consultation with event partners, such as Inspiration Sebastian Kolczyk InCredible and the Polonium Foundation. Next, last year’s edition winners will select three winners who will be awarded prizes in the above categories.
The API award fits perfectly with the mission of the InCredibles mentoring program by Sebastian Kolczyk, which focuses on supporting the best Polish young entrepreneurs. We are delighted that we are part of this exceptional event and can contribute to the recognition and promotion of emerging Polish talent – says Jaroslaw Sroka, Member of the Board of Directors of Kulczyk Investments.
Both event formats – webinar and networking meetings – will be held in English. Participation is free (however, for physical meetings interested persons must register as the number of places is limited).
