Get to know us
Universality is a Polish startup founded in 2017.
We create the Universality.io platform that connects the academic environment with the business environment.
Universality is made up of people who combine running IT companies with work at the university
The idea itself was born in 2014, when Jerzy Czepiel, conducting classes at the Jagiellonian University, founded his first IT company. He then invented a tool that would connect employers, educate academics and students in one ecosystem, increasing the level of education and supporting practical preparation of students for work.
Since then, a lot of people have worked on the project, both from academia and the company, including CEOs and board members of companies such as Edge 1 solutions, EduLab, Intive and Euvic.

Beginning of the journey
this is just the beginning of our journey 🙂
Stages of development
We received the first larger financing in 2017 from the Edulab fund, which invested 800.000 PLN in us. PLN. It allowed us to create an MVP and interest the first users at universities.
In February 2019, we received an investment from Leonarto Alfa for product completion and greater development. We managed to fine-tune our business models, increase the number of users, and collect lots of valuable feedback from faculty, students and companies.
We are currently working with PAIH on a pilot program in India as part of Polish Technological Bridges and we are trying to help young students find a job despite the pandemic 😉
We are also working on new functionalities that will appear this summer !
