About this event

Our speakers will share stories of 2 companies, no longer startups, which developed on a large scale due to their hard work and cooperation with big corporations. One is a precursor of the Polish space industry, actively involved in its development. The latter is an effect of a merger of two competitors fighting the same customers. The result is a key player in the Digital Signage market in Poland. Interesting how the founders of Creotech Instruments were linked with the Agency of Industry Development (ARP) and how the founders of Nanovo met their first big customer - RBS Global Hub Europe. What has to happen to make the innovation produced by a startup acceptable for a corporation and successful, increasing the comfort of work and effectiveness of teams? History shows that luck smiles on those who struggle for it, and the result of the competition collision can be a new, unique business. Grzegorz Brona – Assistant Professor at the University of Warsaw, a former employee of CERN, adviser in IT solutions implementation, MBA graduate in IT projects management. In early 2008, two other researchers created  Creotech Instruments to enable the practical application of their knowledge and experience. The areas in question are advanced electronics and optoelectronics, mainly the design and construction of smart digital cameras intended for strictly scientific applications (e.g., in astronomy) and measurement systems based on the solutions of optoelectronics and embedded computer systems, device navigation, acquisition cards, and signal processing systems, data transmission systems and other advanced technical equipment. Kuba Głuszkiewicz - founder of Digeon media communications technology company, merged with Nanovo in 2013. Before that, his small startup, providing software for signage projects, was introduced to the head of communication in a big financial corporation looking for a professional digital media solution. These available on the market offered by leading suppliers didn't meet requirements. What the startup presented during the meeting a month later became a real innovation, changing the work quality of hundreds of employees. This startup was Kuba's Digeon; the corporation was the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS). Our guests will share best practices for collaboration between innovative startups and mature financial organizations. Darek Sobczak - the founder of Nanovo media content communications company, merged with Digeon in 2013. Those two are former competitors (technology vs. content) who decided to build together the most competitive interacting solution for Digital Signage projects in Poland - Nanovo Tech & Nanovo Media. Their SIGNIO software and unique competencies provide media support in distributed networks targeting retail, transport, hospitality, healthcare, and the public.
Andrzej Pacek - Head of Business Support at Royal Bank of Scotland Global Hub Europe (GHE). Currently responsible for the delivery of company support functions crucial for processes of multiple entities in several countries. The scope includes strategy implementation, project management, security, and technology activities. His job is to make GHE a more attractive place to do business and a better place to work in. Maciej Jancewicz - Head of Communication at Royal Bank of Scotland Global Hub Europe (GHE). Responsible for the strategy of communication with employees. As a result of cooperation with Nanovo, Maciej implemented an innovative solution for Visual Management. Lean Touch Screen is a digital communication system that provides corporate information to all employees and selected groups. A system built on Signio and Oracle BI is also used to manage and increase teamwork effectiveness.
