Business Angel of the Year 2021 Gala

After weeks of waiting, on March 15th, 2022 we will finally learn who will receive the Business Angel of the Year 2021 awards! The winners will be announced during the online Gala, which we kindly invite everyone to follow, by registering HERE.

This year, in addition to showcasing the profiles of business angels, special emphasis will be placed on a trend that is rapidly growing in mature markets - impact investing, which apart from leading to financial gains, supports solving social problems.

The panelists will also include people who represent organizations and initiatives supporting Ukraine. During the Gala, we will actively support the charity fundraising for Ukraine conducted by the Tech to the Rescue Foundation, represented during the event by Jacek Siadkowski, the Foundation's Managing Director.  

This year the Gala will be held in a hybrid formula. Over a hundred guests will join us during the meeting in Warsaw, and thanks to the online broadcast we will be connected to participants from all over Poland and the world.

Below you can find the Gala program. The event will be hosted by Jarosław Kuźniar. Among the invited guests and panelists there will be business angels, VC fund managers and representatives of the entire startup ecosystem. We invite you to join the event to find out whom the Competition Committee and Internet users decided to award for their activity in 2021.

During the Gala, Robert Ługowski and Tomasz Laskowicz will announce the launch of a new project prepared for current and future angels of business.
