ONLY SERIOUS INVOLVEMENT IN NEW TECHNOLOGIES CAN PROTECT US AGAINST THE ONSET OF A MAJOR CRISIS ANNA HEJKA, Founder & Managing Partner, HCM Group, talks to “Polish Market”. You can often hear that Polish people are capable, enterprising and hard-working. So why don’t more Polish firms and ideas break ground in foreign countries? What seems to be missing? We have great scientists with amazing inventions. What is deficient is implementation i.e. innovation. Following decades of the Soviet rule, Polish firms lack: (i) confidence not only in their certainty of achieving ambitious goals, but also skills in promoting themselves, building the company’s image, effective marketing and PR; (ii) an ability to leverage cooperation due to the very low level of social capital and (iii) an understanding of a cash conversion cycle, especially among the beginning entrepreneurs.
