I explained the rules and idea. (more detail here  ) everyone can have 1-2 minutes: Telling others present   who you are,  where you are from, what you are doing, what you want, how we can help you and what you can offer. The introductions to everyone stops and networking happens at 09:00. English preferred, Polish OK. We welcome foreigners in Kraków,  have a historical role as a trading centre, and are against nationalist, xenophobic trends West and especially East of Poland).  It’s no problem if you are not an Entrepreneur, or a Geek. Geeks and Entrepreneurs are welcome.
