Purpose: The article's main objective was to try to identify the scale of influence of foreign companies operating in Poland on domestic entities in the sphere of technology and knowledge transfer, as well as to explain the influence and intensity of factors encouraging and discouraging the development of transnational cooperation. Design/Methodology/Approach: This objective was achieved through a literature search, empirical research, and statistical modeling. Findings: The research has shown that the lack of domestic capital significantly limits the possibilities of dynamizing the development of Polish enterprises and the Polish economy and that the sum of added values brought by the cooperation of domestic and foreign enterprises is an "injection" of innovation for them. Practical Implications: The research results will also allow managers and other stakeholders to predict the entrepreneurial attitudes of both domestic and foreign companies in terms of their innovative cooperation. Originality/Value: The article is an essential contribution to research development on the cooperation between Polish and foreign enterprises in technology, knowledge, and skills transfer. It allows us to understand the determinants of cooperation of the studied enterprises and provides a basis for future research.
