Fostering Client Success
As a trusted partner, PKO Bank Polski has brought several hundred C-level executives onto the platform, representing polish companies’ interests nationally and internationally. It’s the feedback from these clients, referencing the platform as a key tool in keeping their operations running throughout the COVID-19 lockdowns, that encouraged the bank to invest further in the service.
“Opportunity Network makes PKO Bank Polski stand out from the competition,” shares Iga Drz?szcz of El-Logic Grzegorz Kulawik. “The platform has allowed me to find new contacts in markets around the world. I certainly perceive it as an added value.”
By extending the partnership, PKO Bank Polski seeks to help companies withstand the economic pressure created by the COVID-19 pandemic. A fast and accessible way to connect to immediate solutions for liquidity, supply chain disruption and logistical interference across 100+ industries, the platform has been a vital tool for members.
“In the past eight months our PKO Bank Polski members have seen widespread success on the platform,” explains Opportunity Network’s Managing Director of Europe, Titia Westra van Holthe. “The feedback from these clients as well as the number of deals they have engaged in through the platform has further proven how important it is to offer this kind of service to clients. Through the expansion of our partnership with PKO Bank Polski and the offer of one month of free access to its clients, we extend this opportunity for success to the rest of their clients.”
