A startup is a company operating in a high value-added sector that develops innovative technological products and has a very high growth potential.
A startup can operate in all sectors with high added value, including information technology, financial technology, biotechnology, e-commerce, hardware, software, mobile, communications technology and many others.
A fast-growing startup becomes a unicorn when it reaches a valuation of USD 1 billion at the time of a formal investment or purchase transaction. If a startup is valued at over USD 2 billion, it is called a double unicorn, or USD 3 billion a triple unicorn, etc.
The main objective of the association is to mobilize and encourage startups and the public to build the future of Lithuania - a successful modern state based on a high value-added economy.
We plan to achieve this by focusing on four main areas of activity: building the community, strengthening the value of the startup economy, promoting the creation of startups and the development of the labor market, as well as achieving a positive breakthrough in the country's education system and in the field of advancing business.
