About this event

Did you know we have a globally successful startup with roots in Berlin and Poland? We invite you to the December edition of Startup Grind Warsaw on December 12th at WeWork’s new location in Warsaw! We will interview Wojtek Szkutnik – Co-founder of Talixo, and Katarzyna Wilczek - Executive Manager at Talixo Poland. Another reason to come – Christmas Business Mixer – to meet great people who can help your business idea become a successful global company like that of Talixo!

About our guests:

Talixo is revolutionizing corporate and B2B travel for the world's largest companies, airlines & online travel platforms, creating a win-win solution for fleets and corporates through pre-booking, yield optimization, and innovative proprietary technology that integrates seamlessly with all corporate platforms such as Amadeus, Concur and Onesto. Talixo was founded in 2012 with offices in Berlin and Krakow. The startup has received little media attention over the first few years, probably because competitors such as Uber, Blacklane or Mytaxi were more in the focus of public debate during the legal disputes around the world. However, investors and corporate partners recognized the startup's business potential and legal framework. 2015 Texas Atlantic Capital (TAC) has led a Series A investment for Talixo. 2017 Deutsche Bahn invested a high seven-digit amount. Following the financing rounds, Talixo has extended its operation to over 1000 cities in 100+ countries. This service expansion represents a significant milestone for their constantly growing business - within a short time of securing additional finances, the operations have gone global. The company is constantly expanding its reach and is adding new cities to its list of destinations regularly. The booking platform utilizes innovative technology to offer businesses competitive rates, flexibility, and security when booking airport transfers and transport for other requirements.

Over the recent years, Talixo built an excellent reputation as the #1 ground transfer provider for Fortune 500 companies, leading to new corporations joining the platform every month. This Berlin-Poland based startup is backed by Private, Institutional, and Strategic investors, including Investitionsbank Berlin, Deutsche Bahn, Amman Group and TA Capital. Join our fireside chat with Wojtek Szkutnik and Katarzyna Wilczek in order to learn and experience:

  •  - the beginnings of setting up a business in a competitive environment
  • - how to find the right investor for your first expansion
  • - what does smart money help you achieve in your business
  • - how to go global
  • - why business environments in Berlin and Poland are different
  • - the challenges of operating globally from two countries and with a two-cultural company mindset
  • and much more…
