Between May 2019 and April 2020, on each last Thursday of the month, hundreds of amazing innovators and curious doers from Warsaw’s community will gather to enjoy, connect, engage and learn from each other. Learn more about the idea of Thursday Gathering.


Time to introduce Venture Cafe to Poland, say “hi” and mingle together. After all, we are all here for the same reason – which is innovation. Therefore we’ve set up the theme for the first event:


The Thursday Gathering is providing the framework upon which numerous experimental “applications” can be nurtured and launched. Especially in this digital world, it’s important to have a physical space to provide a 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 prepared more than 15+ interesting elements on the agenda to enjoy, connect, engage and learn from each other. Learn more about the formula:

+ free beer, wine, and soft drinks
