SoDA Conference 2022
For that trend to continue, we have to move on from working on the basis of ‘everyone for themselves’. We need to collaborate, sharing our know-how, experience and resources and even taking on collaborative projects.
We’re only competitors outwardly. The global market is still capacious enough for there to be room for everyone. In my opinion, collaboration strengthens us and enables us to compete effectively with foreign companies. It also gives us a better negotiating position with clients and investors.
SoDA has also developed a formal field for collaboration, the ‘SoDA Bench’. It’s a platform for sharing information and hiring experts who are currently only available from one member and not from any of the others. Conferences are also a place for networking with first-class experts in various non-IT fields, like sales and HR, for instance. At one conference last year, we got to know a speaker who was a representative of a consultancy company. As a result of that encounter, we started collaborating with the company.
Our panel boasts a major asset in the presence of Marek Dietl, the CEO of the Warsaw Stock Exchange. I’m sure he’ll verify our thoughts on being listed on the public market and have valuable information to offer everyone who is considering obtaining financing from the stock exchange.
