With a team of more than 50 project managers and experts and recognised external partners, Carrywater Group is Poland’s largest company that specialises in project management and in implementing the culture of managing through projects in organisations.
According to its philosophy, the Group is extremely flexible in cooperation with its partners, which effectively reduces the “weight” of the company’s structure and its costs and enables a networking model of partner cooperation that is a business equivalent of Web 2.0. Unlike the companies of the conventional, “heavy” employment structure, Carrywater does not charge its Customers with the hidden costs of its business.
The Group is composed of the following companies:
Carrywater Group S.A. (former Carrywater Consulting Sp. z o.o.), which is the Group’s parent company and an integrator of its know-how and expertise, competences and solutions provided by experts active at the associated partner companies. Carrywater Group S.A. offers consulting and management services based on the three innovative models: Consulting, Interim and Ventures.
NetTeam Solutions S.A. is a provider of dedicated IT solutions and a vendor of systems which support automation of business processes. The company specialises in developing solutions that strictly follow the Customers’ requirements and in their integrating with legacy systems, as well as ensures implementation of solutions based on its proprietary NetTeam products. NetTeam’s managers, analysts and software developers have more than 10 years of experience in development of IT solutions. The company was incorporated in April 2011 by isolating an organised unit from the structures of Carrywater Consulting Sp. z o.o.
The Group’s parent company operates a fund called Carrywater Ventures, which was established to support investment projects executed together with the Group’s Customers and to aid execution of innovative internal projects. The projects of primary interest to the fund operator are those conducted in the context of the most recent information technologies, professional services, mobile technologies, hi-tech services and products and in the field of knowledge and know-how management. Projects are also developed for the energy sector and address such challenges as microgeneration, optimisation of energy consumption, elimination of losses.
Carrywater Ventures is also interested in such areas as mobile applications, cloud application products and services, solutions aimed at improving access to or the quality of information, or solutions for mass users based on their social relationships. The team responsible for the fund has started up Tequila Mobile S.A., Information Market SA (former e-petrol.pl) and Wisdio S.A.
