Top Polish Startups To Watch in 2024

This has led to a number of top startups coming out of the country. The amount of available Venture Capital in the country is also increasing, which in turn is breathing more life into Polish startups. There are currently more than 100 incubators and accelerators in Poland and the number grows larger every year.

There are also a number of government programmes tailored to startups, with the Start in Poland programme, which encourages young entrepreneurs from abroad to come to Poland and get access to funding, internationalization opportunities and more to help the Polish startup ecosystem to grow.

Growth in the startup ecosystem can be clearly seen by the fact that VC raised by Polish startups in 2021 reached 793 Million Euros and in 2022, the total raised in the first half of the year kept pace to eclipse this figure with 448 Million Euros raised in this time.
