Thursday Gathering 

(CHECK THE UPCOMING EVENTS HERE)

Hey Innovators!
It’s Thursday. Let’s get together.

Each month hundreds of people from Warsaw’s amazing innovation and entrepreneurship community gather to enjoy, connect, engage and learn from each other. The Venture Café Thursday Gathering serves as a physical nexus for helping innovators and entrepreneurs find one another and collaborate.

The gathering is free and open to all members of the innovation community who have ideas, talent, resources, and/or passion to contribute and want to participate in a full slate of high-impact programming and informal conversation.

HOW DO WE DO IN OTHER LOCATIONS GLOBALLY?

Venture Cafe Thursday Gathering in a nutshell:

  • Organized globally since 2009;
  • Connecting innovators in Cambridge/Boston, St. Louis, Miami, Rotterdam, Tokyo, Sydney and much more to come;
  • Happening each Thursday at CIC facilities;
  • Gathering more than 500 participants each week;
  • Becoming the world-class tool to engage with the ecosystem & global innovation hotspots with many success stories.

COOL. BUT WHY? 

The Thursday Gathering is the foundation and lynchpin of Venture Café, providing the framework upon which numerous experimental “applications” can be nurtured and launched. Even in this digital world, it’s important to have a physical space to provide common meeting ground for semi-serendipitous encounters that foster brainstorming and drive creativity. Meeting in person establishes the trust that’s so crucial to working together, particularly on risky or bootstrapped projects. We ask that attendees conduct themselves in accordance with our Community Credo.

Why Thursday Gathering Warsaw?

EVEN BETTER OPEN INNOVATION COMMUNITY to establish the gravity point for all 700+ innovation players we’ve mapped in Warsaw
NEW ACTIVATION MECHANISMS to stimulate and accelerate the collaboration process in the modern, value-focused and open way
NEXT LEVEL OF RELATIONS AND VENTURES to create and maintain new relations and projects thanks to the repetitive character of the events
BETTER TOOLS FOR EXCHANGING RESOURCES to provide the exchange platform of talents, leads, know-how and data
MORE RECOGNITION TO THE BRAND OF THE CITY
to expose Warsaw’s innovation ecosystem globally as one and vital organism
