Bart set up PBLINK (Polish Business Link) in 2013 to support the Polish business community in Scotland but I soon realised the massive potential of diverse entrepreneurs across Britain and scaled the business from Scotland to London. Now PBLINK operates across the UK and Central Europe, bringing people together to build business relationships. You will always find a good mix of business owners at PBLINK events. From self-employed polish builders to architects, kitchen fitters and web designers but also well-established entrepreneurs employing hundreds of people.
