Investment Service Center

In recent years, an empowered investment activity has been noticed in Poland, as well as dynamic action among Polish investors and entrepreneurs in EU, the Middle East and Far Eastern countries. This process is highly supported by international economy and open European market and a mass of economic agreements submitted by the Polish government with the Middle East countries, which opened new markets.  Transfer of innovative technologies, in Europe and in other regions of the world, plays a prominent role, for it is the developed web of technical and economic turnover that determines the degree of investment and economic developing pace.

Entrepreneurs looking for funds to develop their branch of activity, and investors looking for high rate of reimbursement from the investments, pay particularly great attention to such sectors as: renewable energy sources, new technologies, IT sector, or in the past – immovable properties. Poland has a lot of economic features which attract the funds and accelerate their development. Nowadays, in order to maintain the interest of the investors and to create economic perspectives for years, it is imperative that high innovation level in economy be kept. Currently, economic powers of Western and Middle Eastern countries have invested in modern technologies a few decades ago already. Today, industry and knowledge which have been developed because of that factor allow them to meet with the citizens’ prosperity needs, development of the country and thus the future in many aspects.

 

Good technology has to be placed in a proper place and time.

Apart from many intensive actions preceded by precise planning, it is relevant that the analysis of development prospects and knowledge on a particular sector’s field of activity in which they would take place be known. A choice of such market sectors in which a technological development is elicited by market’s needs is also important. It prevents from such situations in which we have a perfect technology or a product, but there is no demand for such. In present world, technology transfer might often lead to permeation of it from one sector of economy to another, so it is essential to have a vast knowledge on the market in which the action is taken and the experience supported by submitted projects.

In order to invest in a safe manner, it is crucial to possess proper business means supported by knowledge and perfect acquaintance with a particular branch and investment processes. The answer for such is the Investment Service Centre. (www.investpl.eu).

  1. Investment Projects Platform

The task of this unit is to acquire funds and to find a project partner. ISC experts prepare optimal investment offers for entrepreneurs looking for capital, or looking for high business potential projects for the investors. The advancement of the projects does not play a grand role – a more important factor is its prospective value and high reimbursement rate of the investment. After undertaken analyses of economic market in Poland and in countries which economically attractive,  the most stable and the fastest developing regions and branches are chosen. The experts of the Centre are accurately analyzing the market have distinguished the sectors of broad investment prospects.

The four key fields of interest for ISC specialists are as follows:

Passive and plus energy housing, which means energy-saving building and those which can lead the overabundant amount of generated energy to the transmission network, thus improving the energy balance. The demand for this solution was enforced as a sort of directive, implemented by European Parliament and European Council (2010/31/EU, May 19, 2010), which obliges all member countries to execute an obligation in 2021, which states that all newly built constructions shall be nearly zero energy use objects. The aforementioned field includes: innovative construction technologies, weatherization and thermal systems, door and window carpentry, plus energy materials and devices producing thermal and electrical energy.

Renewable power engineering Renewable energy sources are becoming an element essential to maintain the world’s energy balance. Gradual depletion of conventional power sources leads to the need of use of innovative technologies based on on acquiring energy from renewable sources on which ISC concentrates their attention.

Low-emission transport Just as in power engineering sector, a revolution in this branch is being made, which is to replace combustion-powered vehicles with electric and hybrid ones. They will contribute to the increase of energy independence and the reduction of greenhouse gases emission. The field of interest includes not only factory-made electric cars, but the conversion of combustion cars as well and, what is the most relevant case in this matter, the development of vehicle loading infrastructure.

ICT market is one of the faster and more stable developing markets in our country. Our specialists from IT sector are highly esteemed in the world. Investment Service Centre is looking for would-be start-ups here, as well as for innovative technological solutions worth investing in. In the field of interest of Investment Service Centre there are also projects included from following areas: 

Financial products and services are a vast area of the entire financial market. ISC focuses mainly on investment projects realization as a result of proposed cooperation which includes introducing unique systems of micropayment or multisystem on which the demand is constantly increasing.

Waste management The amount of waste produced by mankind is increasing every year. ISC promotes development of projects which are to increase the amount of recycled wastes. Those, when stored, threaten the natural environment and human health. Such solutions would allow an absolute disability of wastes or to use them as a source of energy.

Military technology is a grand resource of innovation implemented in an organized and precise manner. ISC experts follow the development of Polish arms, shipbuilding and aviation industry, seeing a chance for a development of profitable projects.

Immovable properties The value of transactions finalized on Polish property market in 2015 exceeded €4.1 billion. ISC being an accelerator for innovative projects possesses knowledge and experience crucial for locating the capital in lands and immovable properties.

Technological innovations The implementation of new goods production or improvement of existing ones, opening new market by introducing a product or a service unavailable earlier,  applying a new way of sale, or finally implementing new distribution and organization. Such projects are the field of interest for ISC experts.

Medical and recreation tourism It is an important are of economic activity, and a relevant branch of social activity at the same time. Poland, on the other hand, is becoming more and more eagerly visited country by tourists. Rates of hotel accommodation use being constantly improving every year encourage to invest in this part of the market, and investments in this sector are characteristic for their limited risk and allow to generate relatively high income.

Food market Poland has got rich traditions in producing regional food and great possibilities for producing healthy and eco food. The potential of this branch has not been used entirely yet.

Medicine The emphasis is put on tele-medicine – an innovative form of providing medical treatment and service, binding the elements of medicine and telemetry, aesthetic medicine and cosmetology altogether.

Culture and art It has been always a field and a chance for increasing the capital.  What is important, the art market prices are not vulnerable on crises and financial problems of economy. A well-directed purchase strategy might ensure a high rate of investment reimbursement.
