Thanks for an amazing journey

It is a cold Friday evening, February 2006. My wife, Kasia, and I are sitting on a sofa, enjoying a warm glow of our open fire and a beautiful glass of red wine. We are reflecting on our life, what we have achieved, how happy we are with our beautiful family and exciting careers. Nevertheless, it feels as if something is missing, we are not fulfilled. We feel like finding a new purpose in life. Shall we start looking for

The unstoppable train goes on

10 years ago our adventure began; our great leap into the unknown. Our luggage: our own ideas, motivation and energy, our hard work, trial and error, good luck and determination to overcome any setback. The outside world saw an unstoppable TGV passing by at speed.

Announcing the Gdansk Entrepreneurial NEtwork GENE

You might not realize, but the Poles are probably among the most intelligent, innovative and creative people in the world. I do not have the statistical proof for this bold statement, but they used to win and are still winning many Math and coding contests. Converting these capabilities into known solutions and world-famous companies hasn’t been too successful though. Fortunately, this is changing. Some evidence for this statement is the recent
