„If one does not know to which port one is sailing, no wind is favorable” Seneka

Through creativity, zeal for action and hard work, small and medium enterprises of Silesia and Dąbrowa Basin change the image of the region, and not seldom, of the country and a given business branch. Without both extensive corporate support and decades of experience, they create innovative products, and build a strong brand in spite of the odds.
