It is said that the Poles cannot co-operate  with each other, studies show a dramatically low level of social trust in our country. But on those occasions can be seen that also in Poland begin to be established solid foundations of the so-called ecosystem for entrepreneurship. How to develop this ecosystem , on the basis of best practice from the UK, Malta and the United States, we will discuss at the Opening ŚTP Conference on 17 November in Warsaw - says Justyna Politańska, President of the Foundation of Global Entrepreneurship Week.

The event is under the auspices of: the Ministry of Economy, Minister of Labour and Social Policy, the Representation of the European Commission in Poland, PARP and the Confederation of Leviathan. The co-organization partner of the event is the capital city of Warsaw.
