TechCrunch came to Warsaw last week with an event at the local co-working space and hub Reaktor. A couple of weeks ago, we had a post about the TechCrunch tour of the Balkans and now TC blogger John Biggs has made his way to Warsaw, where the jury selected what might be some of the most promising startups in Poland and award them a table at Startup-Alley at the TechCrunch Disrupt Europe event in Berlin in October. The event was organized by the teams behind Aula Polska and Reaktor. One of the sponsors is the Krakow branch of hub.raum (and on Facebook here), a co-working space operated by Deutsche Telekom. Those interested can check out the full list of teams who pitched for a chance at one of the tickets to the big event in Berlin. According to event organizer Borys Musielak, allerad (supposed to be an “eBay for radiologists”) ended up being the winning pitch and OVL (online courses) finished as the runner-up.
As Reaktor is the host, I think that it will be good to say a few words about their other events, as well. Reaktor was founded in 2011 as a co-working space and offers customers space for about 140 Euro/month (or 350 Euro/month if you need a private room). In addition to offering a workspace for startups, they host a monthly series of events called “OpenReaktor”. Judging from the list of past events, these gatherings regularly attract hundreds of people from the Warsaw startup community and represent a great opportunity to network and learn from members of the Polish entrepreneur community. Reactor has previously hosted individuals like Simon Cross from Facebook, Flatiron Partners co-founder Jerry Colonna, Christian Heilmann of Mozilla, and many others.
