- 09.01.2012 - Interesting article - summary of Krakow IT scene in 2011


The article comes from ASPIRE - http://www.aspire.org.pl/news/krakow-internet-start-up-acquired-by-silicon-valley-leader/


"2011 has been a banner year for the technology scene in Kraków, capped off with the acquisition in December of Kraków Internet start-up Topicmarks by Silicon Valley social discovery leader, Tagged.

During the year, the big news was the announcements by technology giants Cisco and Akamai that they were opening Centres in Kraków, joining existing global players in the city, such as Google, IBM, Motorola and Sabre. The Cisco Centre will initially focus on Technical and Advanced Services, whilst Akamai, the global leader in internet streaming technology will focus on IT development.

The tech media also showed a growing interest in the city, including an article and a video about Krakow’s quickly burgeoning start-up scene in TechCrunch Europe and this fascinating article about the emerging tech scene in the city by Tej Panesar.


The second annual TedX Kraków event occurred and was a resounding success with ASPIRE’s Ramon Tancinco captivating the audience with his presentation on Kraków as Europe’s emerging Silicon Valley.

Krakow IT, a volunteer website focused on tracking all IT activity in Kraków, from start-ups to multinationals, is now the #1 hit in Google when searching “Krakow IT” and the trends are fascinating. Kraków is currently experiencing a huge wave of back-office R&D investment globally, especially from Scandinavia. There has also been a surge of activity in the mobility space. The site also highlights up and coming IT oriented events and an introductory guide to living in Krakow for English-speakers, as the city continues to attract talent from across the world.

The networking ecosystem is also emerging, combining Kraków’s reputation as a party hotspot with high tech haven via such start-up company meet-ups such as the Hive, featured in the TechCrunch video. Additionally, the momentum of Kraków as the Ruby on Rails capital of Europe continues, with the next big Ruby Conference coming in April 2012 in the form of http://railsberry.com/

All told, the tech scene in Kraków can look forward to an exciting 2012."


All the best for everyone for the new, exciting year for Krakow IT and start up scene!

On 20.10.2011 Ramon Tancinco gave a talk called: "Krakow: Europe's Silicon Valley? Why not!" at TEDxKrakow event. Enjoy!



About the speaker:

.. the Head of Strategy and Business Development for Central and Eastern Europe for Cisco Systems. He will talk about Krakow and its potential to become a European Silicon Valley.


About the talk:

Former US Army Captain and now Head of Strategy Business Development for Central and Eastern Europe for Cisco Systems®, Ramon is deeply convinced of Kraków's potential to be a European Silicon Valley. Passionate about technology, entrepreneurship and Kraków (as well as farming, but that's another story), his energy and enthusiasm have helped bring public institutions, businesses and individuals together to work towards creating a more entrepreneur-friendly environment. There's a lot happening in Małopolska at the moment, yet there is still a lot to be done. What can we learn from successful start-up ecosystems such as Silicon Valley or Bangalore? And what attitudes and behaviours are we going to have to nurture (and overcome)?
