Our strategy is based on attracting new investors as well as comprehensive support for investors who have already invested in our city. For this purpose, it was created a dedicated structure within Katowice City Hall providing one-stop shop assistance based upon each specific investor’s expectations and requirements – Investors Assistance Department (IAD).
The Katowice Special Economic Zone was recognized as the best free zone in Europe (in years 2015-2017 and 2019) and 2nd in the world in 2019. The Katowice Special Economic Zone, the largest such zone in Poland in terms of investment value (42 bn PLN) and employment (80 k), is an appropriate solution for businesses wishing to utilize public assistance in the form of income tax exemption, calculated on the basis of investment outlays incurred or new jobs created.
Our latest initiative is Business Incubator Rawa.Ink a place of numerous training courses, events, meetings, a place of integration of start-ups, the local government and the scientific community in Katowice and the region. Due to the cooperation of the Incubator with many partners, actions are taken to develop entrepreneurship. Katowice also supports networking of companies from the business services sector with a start-up environment.
