ASPIRE is among the leading business associations in Central Eastern Europe and the driving force behind Kraków’s emergence as a world class technology and business services hub. For nearly a decade now, we’ve been providing critical know-how, data analysis and powerful knowledge-sharing platforms to our members, the leading multinationals with technology and service centres in the city and the growing array of companies that provide services to them. Our membership represents 180 companies and continues to grow. Our key strength lies in our experience in negotiating across different interest and stakeholder groups, building trust and nurturing a spirit of cooperation. Our key success stories include raising Kraków’s international business profile, attracting new investments and talent to the region and above all helping to shape a business environment in which our member companies, their people and their partners can succeed. We are truly passionate about helping the industry speak with one voice to government, educational institutions and other stakeholders. With “Act Local, Win Global” as our motto, we have been able to raise the industry’s public profile and highlight its key importance in modernising the national and local economy. Although focused on Kraków, ASPIRE supports a city-centric approach to the development of the industry across Central & Eastern Europe, sharing our experience and expertise with sister organisations and cities across the region.
