Polish Investment Fund provides venture assistance and strategic advice
to entrepreneurs working on breakthrough technologies.
We play a crucial role throughout the value chain of enterprise creation,
from the earliest stages of intellectual property development to mid and later-stage. Since its inception,
we have successfully partnered with owners and management teams to achieve their goals by applying our deep industry
and operating expertise and acting as trusted partners.
We assume that a reasonable portion of the risks and milestones associated with seed-type investments have been mitigated, though we understand there is still significant technology and execution risk. While our focus remains on the capabilities of the underlying technology, we want to understand what risks remain (and what you’re doing to mitigate them), as well as your production / go-to-market approach.
But clear identification of the key success variables and missing pieces is important.
We prefer brutal honesty to hypocritical politeness. We seldom vote against management teams in our board roles, but we can have strong opinions.
Once we pick a management team, we back it and don’t second-guess it. We are less about sweet talk and more about helping you build a business. We are definitely not about controlling ownership in your business.
