Challenges

 • EU money = easy money => higher valuations
 • lack of experienced, serial tech entrepreneurs
 • Poland is mostly a “sales” market, no serious R&D (besides Google & Intel)
 • No clear success story so far (i.e. no Polish Skype so far)
 • No country branding (i.e. no “Estonian mafia” notion)
 • Wrocław and Cracow became hubs for software development outsourcing,
  draining the talent pool
                                              www.gammarebels.com chris@hardgamma.com @kkowalcz
Doubts about acceleration model


 • Startups solving too narrow problems

 • Dealflow drain
 • Network effects?

 • That’s why HGV invests in
