It all started in Slupsk in January 2015. At the Slupsk Technology Incubator (Slupski Inkubator Technologiczny) there met people who wanted their ideas to become business reality. Startup Roadshow – a contest that aims to bring innovation to smaller Polish towns was created for them. During 6 editions of the contest, several teams won 100 000 PLN to develop their business idea and gained necessary mentoring support from our Black Pearls VC experts. Nowadays, the final and special edition has been launched!

On Tuesday, 9 June, Sopot’s horse-riding track became the heart of eco-friendly technological solutions used in modular construction. Our portfolio company – Rebel Module – organized a conference titled “Modular construction – from an idea to implementation” (“Budownictwo modułowe – od idei do realizacji”), an event whose main aim was to present an alternative way of building houses and convince people of its safety and efficiency. Among speakers, there were crucial partners of Rebel Module – companies like Cembrit, Fermacell, Steico and Structview, which provide certified elements used by the host of the conference. Participants could also listen to the conference’s patron the President of Sopot – Jacek Karnowski. In an opening speech, he admitted that he is fond of the development of energy-efficient construction and willing to support initiatives whose aim is to make people aware of its value and long-range importance.
