Pangea-mag

At the beginning, there was the germ of an idea – to find a straightforward way to show Poland as the entrepreneurial and intelligent nation it is. That is how PANGEA came to be. The dream was realized and businessmen, scientists and artists of Polish provenance from the UK, USA and Poland began working together to create the PANGEA brand. The mission statement is simple – to promote Poland and Poles outside the country’s borders and to offer support for Poles who have emigrated.

The flagship of the brand is PANGEA Magazine, a bilingual, bimonthly publication established in 2014. It presents an elegant, worldly and journalistic face of what is going on with Polish diaspora and organizations around the world. With a target audience of 21 million Poles who live outside of Poland and as an excellent font of information for everyone else, PANGEA Magazine has rapidly become an important resource presenting cutting edge Polish issues and people in the news and on the move. Feature stores include the thoughts, passions and achievements of accomplished artists, celebrities, businessmen, travelers and diplomats whose lives are a testament that Poles can and do realize their dreams. The magazine’s main focus is business networking and offering assistance with useful tips, new investment opportunities and working with those who make things happen. PANGEA Magazine
