Why us?
‚Hub of Talents’, a startup platform for new ideas - how proud it sounds, right? Actually, there is something to boast about! Białystok Science and Technology Park (BPN-T) - the leader of the project, along with five technoparks in Podlaskie and Warmińsko-Mazurskie provinces is honoured to introduce a modern project addressed to young innovators, whose ideas will change the world for the better. Let everyone hear the great news - we are looking for masters of creativity, the innovation elite, who will shake the 21st century up!

We can help you spread your wings so that you can fly high.

Do not tuck your projects away in a drawer, show them to the world! We are waiting for people like you. Over 50 entities have been involved in the development of the ‚Hub of Talents’ startup platform and the implementation of the incubation programme. They include local government entities, universities, capital funds, local economic institutions, clusters, business institutions and large enterprises that will provide substantial support to the originators. These entities will designate their most experienced experts, who will help prepare a market-revised, profitable and scalable business model for a product or a service that has been qualified to participate in the programme. Then they will help expand it to conquer the world! After the incubation programme lasting a maximum of 10 months, the entrepreneur will be equipped with a professional business model, which in combination with the innovative product or service, will create the opportunity to apply for a non-refundable grant to enter the market and cover the initial phase of running the start-up.

The Hub of Talents startup platform will enable originators to work on their startup in specially dedicated spaces, in each of the six cooperating parks. Below are described just a few selected areas where startups may be established:

Białystok Science and Technology Park:
Centroom Coworking Space - an urban cowork located exactly in the centre of Bialystok. It provides optimal conditions for modern work by creating a local hub of innovation and cooperation. Its aim is to support new businesses and young people who want to start their own business as well as the so-called freelancers working in the professions, by offering them a place to do their job in the most convenient location. Centroom is a unique place where you can work on your startup, take part in interesting workshops and training sessions enhancing the competence of young entrepreneurs as well as meet and share knowledge with interesting people from other industries or potential clients. Go to www.centroom.pl for more information. Transferownia - a creatively arranged and imaginative space where students and academic workers realise projects commissioned by companies. The use of innovative technologies is conducive to the development of new solutions, which can later be commercialised. Transferownia provides suitable tools and a place for work. The cooperation benefits both sides - students and the scientific community get the opportunity to deal with real business problems, whereas companies get access to a platform of open innovation.

Suwałki Polska Wschód Science and Technology Park Ltd.
The park will soon open a large coworking space for potential startups, where they will be able to work on their own projects and ideas. The office space will be available from 8 to 16 at no charge, in which time you will be able to work and make new business contacts. The facilities will include a broadband internet access, an overhead projector and a flipchart, a kitchenette and a place to work.

Ełk Science and Technology Park - the space available to originators:
As part of the project, the Science and Technology Park in Ełk will open its doors to originators and provide office spaces furnished with desks, chairs, bookcases, cabinets, VOIP phones and desktop computers. Office users will have access to the full sanitary facilities (also adapted for disabled persons) and staff facilities equipped with a fridge, a microwave, a kettle and a coffee maker. A conference and training room, equipped with multimedia equipment and sound system necessary for various meetings (speakers, wireless microphones, desktop microphones, conference microphones with the possibility of recording audio, a set for simultaneous interpreting in 3 languages, projectors, interactive whiteboards, a laptop) will also be made available to the project participants. Those who will feel the need for networking will have the opportunity to do so by using a shared workspace - a coworking area. As far as possible, startups will also be given access to the colour laboratory and the chemical and microbiological laboratory, which contain specialised equipment for colour control and equipment for chemical and microbiological research.
As leaders we have ensured that the Hub of Talents platform provides the highest quality service in terms of training, mentoring, business, technology and consulting, as part of the acceleration programme. This comprehensive programme comprises the entire startup ecosystem by creating a network of connections between young entrepreneurs, local authorities, experienced entrepreneurs, universities and business institutions. A number of external experts are also involved - specialists in the field of technology, business institutions, VC funds, seeds, business angels and investors as well as individuals with experience gained while working for startups that have successfully introduced their product into market. What does it mean? You will learn from the best! Such solid support will enable every innovator to develop from an inexperienced originator to a pioneer aware of the market opportunities, who will operate worldwide! What else? Originators will be granted access to office space where they will effectively develop their business ideas under the guidance of mentors.
