We got it!
We won the 3rd edition of the Szczecin_Up – Szczecin Mentoring Program in the “Young Business” category.
We feel that we earned it with 115 days of hard, fruitful work – it was an interesting challenge for us.
We won the competition, but most importantly, we met wonderful people, professionals from whom we learned a lot!
Congratulations to the winners of the category “Proof of concept” BIO-PHOTO-POLYMER by Paula Ossowicz-Rupniewska, Rafal Rakoczy, Paulina Bednarczyk – to be among such winners is a real honor.
Special thanks to our Mentor Artur Ratuszyński it was an honor!

Profile of our mentor

Artur Ratuszyński has been involved in public relations, strategic consulting and Design Thinking processes and trend research for years, co-created the Smart City Szczecin development program, works with companies supporting them in building development and communication strategies and crisis management.
He lectures at Poznań and Szczecin universities teaching storytelling, communication, image crisis management and Design Thinking. He is a Trend Researcher, Certified facilitator of Design Thinking processes, a fan of Apple and Big Data and: Urbanholic, espresso fanatic and traveler.
Together, we spent many hours analyzing and simplifying our communications, which proved to be a challenge. It’s safe to say that we entered the program as a different company 😉 and ended up with a completely new image;-)
This is because during Szczecin_UP, there was a rebranding of the brand “Make it!” In “RE make it” and in connection with this, both our image, website and communication changed and mature.

To whom the Szczecin_Up – Szczecin Mentoring Program is addressed

The Szczecin_Up – Szczecin Mentoring Program is organized by Technopark Pomerania for the third time. Its task is to create conditions for the dynamic development of innovative enterprises in the Szczecin Metropolitan Area. Support is offered to budding, creative entrepreneurs and newly established companies with high business and commercial potential. Participants in the program are provided with the assistance of mentors, advisors and business experts. In addition, part of the program is networking in the Szczecin “sturtup community”, contact with investors as well as the opportunity to present themselves in new situations.

We took advantage of this support, and implemented the results of the workshops and joint work on an ongoing basis. Cooperation with experienced entrepreneurs/mentors enabled us to refine our business model and allowed us to discover new directions.
We hope that there will be more such programs supporting innovative ideas in Szczecin
We recommend !!!
