Today Poland joins Europe’s growing startup database network powered by Dealroom. Led by PFR and backed by leading players in the Polish ecosystem Cogito Capital Partners, InnoEnergy, Point Nine Capital, SpeedUp Energy Innovation, Google for Startups and Wolves Summit, the new Poland startup database provides a 360-degree view of the rapidly evolving innovation economy of Poland, mapping companies, investors and support organisations in detail. This will act as a highly valuable resource for founders, investors and policymakers at what is a crucial time for every industry.
The database covers:
- 1000+ startups and scaleups
- 135 VC funds
- 100+ accelerators and workspaces
- 1,600+ funding rounds & exits
The Poland startup database will be a collaborative home for the Polish startup ecosystem, combining managed, partner and submitted data.
Poland hosts the largest developer pool in Central and Eastern Europe at 254k, over twice the number of Romania in second place (118k). And the region as a whole has created eight current unicorns including Gitlab and grammarly, has been responsible for seven $1bn+ exits including Skype and avast, and is home to 21 “future unicorns” such as docplanner and pipedrive.
As tech ecosystems and economies around the world face unprecedented times, access to the latest data and insights will be central in navigating the Coronavirus crisis.
Our aim is to build the most comprehensive database about Polish innovation, to showcase the ever-changing landscape of Poland’s tech scene. The startup database catalogues 823 startup investment rounds closed in Poland since 2013, more than any other country in CEE (477 in Estonia 477, and 455 in Hungary), and provides investment-grade data to domestic ecosystem players, startups and policymakers.
This is already the most extensive open access tech industry data platform in Poland, but we want to make it even better. Contribute by adding your company or by sharing the database with your network. Give us your feedback, to help shape the development of the database and ecosystem.
