Polish businessmen are cautious; they rarely see business opportunities and cooperation is viewed as a necessary evil. Moreover, their self-esteem is very high, according to Puls Biznesu, referring to a report by the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor. This research shows that Polish entrepreneurship is below the EU average in many categories and in some it was actually the worst. Poles do well when it comes to their willingness to establish a company, which is one of few positives. Poles also believe that their knowledge of business is high. On the other hand, Polish people lack the ability to see business opportunities, says Dr. Przemysław Zbierowski of the University of Economics in Katowice. Furthermore, the percentage of people who notice business opportunities fell by 13 percent in 2011-12. Cooperation between Polish companies is surprisingly high but businessmen treat it like a necessary evil. They know that they will not be able to survive without it. However, once they attain a stable position on the market, they reduce the level of collaboration.
