The "Good Idea" programme has a budget of PLN 2 million (EUR 470,000, USD 570,000) and is targeted at people who have interesting business ideas but do not know how to put them into practice, Deputy Development Minister Jadwiga Emilewicz said on Friday.
The programme, which is still at the pilot stage, has been designed by the Development Ministry together with the state-run Polish Development Fund (PFR), according to Poland’s PAP news agency.
The aim is to offer professional and organisational support to people with innovative ideas to help them carry out their plans, Emilewicz told PAP. (gs/pk)
