Salesbook in the NCBR acceleration program
On February 19, 2020, the National Center for Research and Development (NCBR) launched a pilot acceleration effort with the state of Nevada called NCBR-NAP: NCBR-Nevada Acceleration Program. The aim of the project is to combine innovative ecosystems of Poland and the state of Nevada through acceleration on the American market – with the use of institutions and related mentors from the state of Nevada.
Salesbook took part in the business internationalization program organized by NCBR. After intensive workshops in Warsaw, it is going to Nevada, USA as the best Polish candidate.
The expected result of the initiative is to lead to the start of cooperation between companies and institutions from Poland and the State of Nevada in the widely understood field of innovation, including the commercialization of offered technological solutions and support for cooperative forms of research and development activity.
At the first stage, companies from among the submitted application forms that have successfully passed the formal assessment were subjected to substantive evaluation. The best 30 startups were invited to participate in the four-day Bootcamp in Warsaw. There, in smaller groups, they worked work with coaches from Poland and Nevada.
The culmination of Bootcamp Warsaw was Demo Day, during which representatives of selected startups delivered elevator pitches and answered questions of the jury. The jury then assessed startups and made the list of 10 finalists who will soon fly to Nevada.
Salesbook represented by CEO – Jacek Maciak – received the highest number of points from the judges among all the presenting companies and is going to Nevada as the best Polish candidate!
