I had the opportunity to catch up with the students at Gdynia Business Week (Poland) this past August. Ninety students from Poland and ten American students participated in a fast paced week of international business! They formed ‘companies’; had to create a business plan; make a stockholders presentation; participate in a trade show to find capital to run their business and graduate with honors! Students actually met with local Polish businessmen and women including Jerzy Buzek, President of the European Union. The Mayor of Gdynia also made an appearance.
It is exciting for me to be part of the Seattle Gdynia Sister City organization that believes in promoting good will between Seattle and Gdynia and watch programs such as this grow each year. Feel free to look through the images captured during the week:
