Prieš daugiau nei 200 metų įkurtos buvusios Antakalnio karo ligoninės teritorijoje, Sapiegų rūmų parke šiuo metu kuriasi „Vilnius Tech Park“ – telekomunikacijų ir informacinių technologijų startuolių bei verslo parkas. Šio projekto tikslas – sukurti visą startuolių ekosistemą po vienu stogu.

Parke siekiama sukurti startuoliams reikalingą ekosistemą – čia įsikurs rizikos kapitalo fondai, verslo akseleratoriai, veiks bendro darbo centras (angl. Coworking hub), konferencijų centras, išskirtines sąlygas startuoliams siūlančios teisininkų kontoros padalinys ir, startuoliai.

Tikima kad įvairaus dydžio startuoliams dirbant šalia vieni kitų atsiras sinergijų. Be to, šalia dirbs verslo akseleratoriai („StartupHighway”, „Startup.lt”) ir rizikos kapitalo fondai („Practica Capital”, „IMI.VC”), kurie galės padėti pritraukti investicijas. Parke taip pat dirbs vyriausybinės organizacijos „Startup Lithuania” atstovai.

Šiuo metu startuoliams ir paslaugas jiems teikiančioms kompanijoms išnuomota jau daugiau nei 70 proc. pastatų, dalis jų jau spėjo įsikelti ir pradėti darbą. „Vilnius Tech Park“ startuoliams siūlo ne tik erdvę darbui, bet ir verslo vystymo partnerysčių paketą, kurį sudaro „Master Class Lietuva“ pagalba ieškant C lygio vadovų, „Devs.LT“ dirbtiniu intelektu grįsta sistema programuotojų paieškai, „Cobalt“ teisinės paslaugos, „Integre“ buhalterijos ir apskaitos tvarkymas bei kiti partnerių pasiūlymai. Parke, po vienu stogu, taip pat susiburia ne tik įvairūs startuoliai, bet ir rizikos kapitalo fondai „Practica Capital“, „IMI.VC“, akseleratoriai „Startup Highway“ ir „Startup.lt“.

Boosting Local Startups Globally at „Vilnius Tech Park“

Startup Lithuania, a division of Enterprise Lithuania – a government agency to assist startups in Lithuania, relocates to the biggest startup hub in the Baltics and Nordics, launched on Nov. 16th in Vilnius. The decision to move part of the government agency closer to startups themselves clearly represents Lithuania’s aim to emerge as the leading startup-friendly ecosystem in the Baltic region.

Vilnius Tech Park is the biggest technology hub for startups and other businesses within ICT sector in the Baltics and Nordics. With more than 750 entrepreneurs from 40 different companies, the new technology park is attracting both local and international talents from the most booming sectors, such as gaming, big data, cyber security and visual graphics. The City of Vilnius in partnership with private capital companies has started realizing a majestic initiative to make Vilnius the main attraction point for tech-savvy talents across the whole region.

During the last few years, Lithuania has brought up new innovations to the global tech market and is aiming to become one of the tech leaders in the region. With its talent pool, consisting of 93% of population having secondary or higher education and being 1st in CEE for the sciences, technology and mathematics graduates per capita, Lithuania is also making policy changes to boost the startup scene in the country, i.e. startup visa, which is about to ease access towards Western markets for non-EU tech entrepreneurs. 

The startup branch of the agency Enterprise Lithuania has helped numerous startups to raise funds, find international partners, get coverage from the international media, and more. This is important as startups often have limited resources, including time. They have also helped in making Lithuania recognized as a startup friendly country.

For Startup Lithuania, Vilnius Tech Park is a perfect place to achieve their goals and be in touch with the startup community. They believe Vilnius Tech Park will be the new physical core of the Lithuanian startup ecosystem, abuzz with startups, VC funds, accelerators, freelancers, and creative minds. 

As Darius Zakaitis, the co-founder of Vilnius Tech Park, states, presence of Startup Lithuania will enrich the community in many different ways. “As one of our goals is not only to provide local startups with opportunities to grow, but also enable foreign tech entrepreneurs serving as a gateway between Eastern and Western markets, having a government branch dedicated to startup ecosystem development on site is the key as they assist with necessary connections to make the process of establishing a startup here smooth as well as help startups scale globally. But what is even more exciting, is that this step clearly demonstrates the priorities of Lithuanian government and they are leaning towards hands-on approach to actually help disruptive businesses in the country.”
