Małopolska is a region with an ever-growing number of technology companies, research centres and innovative start-ups. In the European Cities and Regions of the Future 2022/2023 ranking prepared by fDi Magazine, Kraków ranked first in the large cities category for business friendliness and second in the human capital and lifestyle category.
Małopolska is already home to more than 14,000 entities operating in the information and communications technology sector, and each year the number of new entrepreneurs in the province grows by about 10,000. Among them we can find dynamically developing technology start-ups, but also global investors such as Google, Cisco, Motorola, Shell, Rolls Royce, Philip Morris, Lufthansa, Delphi, R.R. Donnelley, Coca-Cola, Heineken and MAN Trucks.
Thanks to the high level of qualifications of their employees, Kraków and Małopolska offer foreign companies great potential to rapidly expand their IT teams. 3 renowned universities conduct research related to the ICT sector, and there are also 38 business environment institutions offering services to entities operating in the industry. Every year, 37,000 well-prepared graduates enter the labour market. What’s more, financial expenditures on Research and Development place the region as the second in the country.
Małopolska is also the venue for many conferences and events related to new technologies, such as Digital Dragons, which attract industry representatives from all over the world. The Małopolska region has included the gaming industry in its Smart Specializations, which has made it eligible to apply for support from European funds available at the regional level. This has benefited, for example, Bloober Team – Kraków’s largest game company. For years, another significant example of the Małopolska Voivodeship’s involvement in the development of this area of the economy has been its role as the main partner of Digital Dragons. The Małopolska Voivodeship has so far allocated nearly PLN 1.3 million to support the event.
Małopolska is developing to become an increasingly attractive place to live, work and spend leisure time. The effects of these efforts are visible – Krakow is the only Polish city to be among the most popular European travel destinations according to Travellers’ Choice 2022 ranking organized by the TripAdvisor travel website.
