POLAND 2.0 | 2020


Due to the ongoing risk associated with COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to act responsibly and take this year’s Summit online. Yet despite not being able to organise a physical event in London this year, we remain determined to provide you with the most valuable conference experience possible. The only difference is that you will be enjoying it from the comfort of your own home.

As per usual, the Summit will tackle issues related to startups, innovation and entrepreneurship. This year’s thematic blocs will be as follows: Intro, Entrepreneurship & Finance, Creative Technology, MedTech, Sustainability, State & Security and Digital Future.
