The number 13 turned out to be lucky for Reality Games. On September 13, 2016 ten startups were chosen out of over 200 Polish startups to present their products to the President of Poland at the Presidential Palace in Warsaw. Reality Games was one of the ten. The startups were chosen by a committee made up of Polish VCs, startup founders, and major stakeholders. Therefore, Reality Games felt quite honored to be chosen by our peers to represent the best that the Polish ecosystem have to offer.
– We were looking for companies that have been on the market for no longer than 5 years and have released an innovative product, technology, business model or idea how to optimize the existing process in areas such as biotechnology and medical technologies, consumer and IoT, cyber security, data management and analytics , technology, education, energy and environmental technologies, FINTECH technologies for industry, technologies for media, communications and entertainment, robotics, artificial intelligence, augmented reality – said Julia Krysztofiak-Szopa, CEO of Startup Poland.
Among selected to present in front of the Polish Head of State were successively Kontakt.io, NanoSanguis, Nexbio, Elmodis, SatAgro, Reality Games, Migam, FlyTech UAV, VoicePin.com, and Photon Entertainment. The startups were given four minutes to pitch to the President, the media, and potential investors.
The Polish President was very impressed. He was amazed that the over 2000 Polish startups were able to find markets outside of Poland. He was grateful to Silicon Valley for their support and guidance. He declared that the Polish government will be giving Polish entrepreneurs and startups more support and funding in the coming years.
Reality Games walked away as one of three recipients of an all expenses paid trip to Websummit in Lisbon, Portugal sponsored by the Polish Ministry of Finance. Reality Games was also granted access to the Presidential Airplane to accompany him in one of his future trips abroad.
“You have to feel honored anytime you are invited to present your company to your country’s Head of State. It was especially meaningful when the invitation was made by a committee of our peers. It really validates our efforts and place in Poland’s startup ecosystem. We would like to thank Startup Poland for organizing this meeting. We believe that more events like this will be important in solidifying the role of startups in Poland’s economy.” – Paul Chen – Tech Evangelist of Reality Games
