This week 12 startups from 7 countries presented their innovative products during the pitch battle organised by the Baltic Sandbox in collaboration with The FinTech Inn Conference - the biggest FinTech conference in the Baltics, powered by the Ministry of Finance of the Republic of Lithuania and the Bank of Lithuania. Teams pitched in front of international investors, who will also be joining us for the Demo Days (November 22-23).
This week was dedicated to marketing and communication. Seven leading global marketing and communication experts provided workshops, office hours, and most importantly feedback to our startups. Some startups as well as mentors chose to have a 6-day week and exchange as much knowledge as they could this week!
As a part of Lithuanian FinTech Week 'Baltic Sandbox' and 'Rise Vilnius' organised ‘Rise for the Pitch’ event. 9 FinTech startups, 6 of which are taking part in the acceleration program, pitched to investors from all three Baltic states. Afterwards, Baltic Sandbox organised one-on-one meetings with the investors, which gave startups a great opportunity to discuss their products in more detail. Some investors visited Vilnius as well as Baltic Sandbox for the first time and promised to join again for the Demo Days (November 22-23). We’re looking forward!
During this week, Baltic Sandbox welcomed Wallace Green, who has more than 20 years of experience in positioning and innovation pitching. Andrius Bičeika from Revolut, Aušra Puodžiūnienė from ERGO, and 9 other mentors provided mentorship as well as 1-on-1 meetings with our startups this week. It’s been one extremely busy and productive week!
Week #2 has successfully come to an end. With an outstanding mentorship from Jonas Jokštys (management and finance consultant), Andrius Bolšaitis (SEB Lietuvoje), Ieva Aleksandravičiūtė (ERGO), Rūta Merkevičiūtė (Bank of Lithuania) and others. Our teams are not only feeling stronger in the world of finances, we do have a better understanding of how the value proposition could be presented by a plain Excel sheet. And the biggest thank you to SEB Inovaciju Centras for hosting us this week.
Baltic Sandbox acceleration program is in full speed. Fintech and SaaS startups from Lithuania, Russia, Belarus, Australia, and Ukraine have only 8 weeks to reach their acceleration goals. Updates on their progress are coming shortly. Workshops from Sergej Fedorovič, Mike Bradshaw from Startup Sauna (FI), Rūta Merkevičiūtė from the Bank of Lithuania and Ieva Elvyra Kazakevičiūtė from Revolut and Be&Do guys Gediminas and Rapolas. Biggest applause for our lovely coworking partner AltSpace for having us at their place!
