Startup Weekend’s Back in Trojmiasto. PayLane will be there.

The excitement after Startup Contest has barely died down and another event is coming up! The 2nd edition of Startup Weekend Trojmiasto will take place in two weeks. 100 aficionados of new technologies will meet again on 9-11 November in Pomeranian Science and Technology Park in Gdynia, Poland. The participants will work in groups that will have 54 hours to create and present a concept for a startup.

Our Managing Director Karol Zielinski is one of coaches that support teams in creating process.
