Start-up Challenge 2020

During the European Tech and Start-up Days, we will select the winners of the Start-up Challenge competition for the fifth time. In 2019, a record-breaking number of nearly 300 start-ups from several continents joined the competition. Among the 100 businesses that were selected to present themselves in the Start-up Alley at the European Start-up Days, there were ideas originating from Belarus, Germany, Poland (the majority of them), Hungary, the UK, and the USA. Among them, there are business ideas including: software robots and chatbots – including those that will support people with problems such as addictions; solutions based on drones, augmented reality and machine learning; tools for automatic data analysis; charging infrastructure for electric vehicles; medical solutions; an application that will navigate the blind and visually impaired; solutions that will enable people to live in a smog-free atmosphere; solar devices; and many others.

‘The European Start-up Days is the driving force for start-ups entering the market. As finalists of the competition, we had the opportunity to showcase our product to hundreds of people and present ourselves on the start-up stage, as well as to confront our Umownik with the needs of big business. Today, we have already gone two steps further: our network of contacts has expanded and the recognition of our brand has increased. Most importantly, however, people are now aware that creating, negotiating and entering into contracts online is already possible’, said Bartłomiej Majchrzak from the Umownik start-up.
