ABOUT THE PROGRAM
On Thursdays, hundreds of people from every part of the innovation community gather to enjoy, connect and learn from each other. This event is called the Venture Café Thursday Gathering – the central innovation community event in Warsaw. Participation is always free for everyone.
At each gathering, you can attend interdisciplinary sessions with industry experts or get involved in creating content to share with the rest of the community. We make sure that every event offers something for everyone but the main point of each gathering is a facilitated, modern networking opportunity supported by our team. Why? Because we all know that collaboration requires trust and innovation does not happen in isolation. By providing an easily accessible ecosystem platform and arranging opportunities for face-to-face interaction, we are improving the social trust factor and making the community more diverse, inclusive, and better connected, both locally and globally.
Thursday Gathering and other programs are shaped by an independent non-profit organization, the Venture Cafe Warsaw Foundation, with support from an amazing innovation community. This joint effort is transforming how an entire city works and catalyzes many new ideas and relations, making things happen! Our movement began in 2010 in Cambridge, USA, and is currently present in many cities across the globe connecting innovators, generating economic growth and making the world a better place.
PROGRAM PARTNERS FOR 2020/2021 SEASON
Our philosophy for catalyzing connectivity
We’re in the business of breaking down silos and firmly believe that the best place to start is to create spaces and places to meaningfully connect innovators to make things happen. Attendees expected to participate in a manner consistent with our Community Credo:
To support the Venture Café’s mission to enable fresh and useful conversations and to act as a community hub, Venture Café reserves the right to disinvite any individual that its management feels, in their sole judgment, detracts from achieving its mission or infringes on the above credo. We see this as a living document and welcome comments on this, our expression of the Venture Café philosophy.
