LEAD CEE AT IBM) AND DARIUSZ ŻUK (CO-FOUNDER & CEO OF BUSINESS LINK). “WE ARE INTERESTED IN COMPANIES FROM CENTRAL AND EASTERN EUROPE, ALREADY AT A FAIRLY ADVANCED STAGE OF DEVELOPMENT: THEY HAVE CLIENTS, REVENUES, AND SUPPORT OF OTHER INVESTORS”, SAYS PIOTR PIETRZAK. DARIUSZ ŻUK ADDS THAT HE IS PARTICULARLY INTERESTED IN COMPANIES IN THE BLOCKCHAIN AND AI AREAS. HE ALSO EXPOSES THE VISION OF THE NEW SILICON VALLEY WHICH MAY BE CREATED IN CENTRAL AND EASTERN EUROPE. “WE HAVE EXPANDED THE INCREDIBLES PROGRAM TO THE CEE AREA BECAUSE WE SEE GREAT POTENTIAL IN THIS REGION.
