According to an announcement today, Google for Entrepreneurs is bringing Campus to Warsaw. Campuses are Google’s spaces for entrepreneurs to connect, learn and get mentorship, and build innovative startups. According to the announcement, posted by the Head of Google for Entrepreneurs Europe, Eze Vidra, the move to Poland is part of their “ongoing investment throughout the region.”
This is not the company’s first initiative in Poland. In Krakow, they previously launched the Google for Entrepreneurs Krakow program. They also launched the Digital Economy Lab with Warsaw University.
In the past couple of years, Poland’s entrepreneurial scene has grown and attracted both domestic and international startups and investors. Warsaw’s low cost of living, quality of talent, and proximity to Europe’s largest tech city, Berlin, are major selling points. So it’s no surprise that Google chose the capital to bring Campus for Entrepreneurs.
“Our hope is that Campus Warsaw will supercharge tech entrepreneurs, strengthen the startup ecosystem, and encourage even more innovation in Poland,” said Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt.
