Kamińska just graduated in Business management, and after years of education
and work experience, she was resolved in her idea to start her own business.
She was looking for opportunities to make her plans more solid and boost her
confidence and skills to launch her company internationally and when she heard of
the EYE programme, she decided to get on board as a New entrepreneur.
The two entrepreneurs started an exchange, during which Zuzanna analyzed
the Italian and Polish markets’ general conditions and compared similarities
and differences. She cooperated with Stefano to come up with innovative
marketing strategies, product presentations, project management models, and
workflows. She created a new Business Internationalization Model for the target
country and produced successful marketing materials, boosting the
internationalization of Finance Atena. Stefano and his team shared with Zuzanna
their knowledge about organization management how to automate processes and provide
advice accordingly. Both of them developed their contact base internationally.

new ideas together, boost Stefano’s company and develop Zuzanna’s business
project and skills by cooperating and sharing information.

started the internationalization process of his company. Zuzanna and Stefano
found a perfect partnership, so much so that he decided to maintain his
connection with her after the exchange. Zuzanna will manage the Polish and
