Entrepreneurship support

We actively participate in the creation and development of a friendly business ecosystem in Mazovia and take measures to support local entrepreneurship. We are building wide cooperation networks with various stakeholders, within which we create ideas of joint events supporting entrepreneurship, improving competences and knowledge not only of entrepreneurs, but also of employees of Local Government Units (LGU).

In our daily work, we exchange experience and know-how in the field of entrepreneurship support with such institutions as the Marshal's Office of the Mazowieckie Voivodeship, JST - municipalities and districts (Radom, Ostrołęka, Płock, Żyrardów, Bielany, Ursynów, Targówek), the Centre of Entrepreneurship Smolna, Industrial Development Agency JSC, Płock Industrial and Technological Park, National Chambers of Commerce and other chambers of commerce, clusters, employers' associations and other Business Support Organisations (BSO). We also cooperate with other regions and their institutions. This mutual support and exchange of information helps us to develop new projects, information meeting programmes and other entrepreneurship-oriented tools.

Thanks to our broad cooperation, we implement projects that support entrepreneurship and target different audiences: employees of LGUs, entrepreneurs, including owners of family businesses, or students and young researchers.
