Hey GoGlobers! We have published the webinar BOOMING LITHUANIAN STARTUP ECOSYSTEM! We create events about startup ecosystems in different countries in order to enable more entrepreneurs to gain access to knowledge and resources that will help in development.
Each country provides startups with different tools and a different set of opportunities to create value in the world through a successful business! We are trying to dive into the secrets and insights of each country, talking with people who can really share their experience and relevant information about business development in their country!
So this time we tried to help to explore possibilities and benefits for startups to join Lithuania's Startup Ecosystem and scale to the EU markets! Meet the speakers!
