Silvertech Acceleration Program

The Silvertech Acceleration Program is created to support the EU-based founders who are building various solutions for senior citizens. Travel services, dating apps, sport, meditation, delivery, education, jobs, recreation, medical care – everything that allows our parents and grandparents to become a part of the digital world, to maintain their mental and physical health, and to make them feel happier and live a healthier life.

Investment & Networking Week

The 5-day event offers a dual benefit. Startups have a chance to dive deeper into the world of fundraising within inspiring workshop sessions with VCs & Investors. The most notable startups will have a chance to make a brilliant impression through pitch sessions. This event enables investors to acknowledge innovations that will drive future growth.

Business Angel School

Baltic Sandbox presents the Business Angel School that runs different editions of Business Angel Leaders, a hands-on educational and networking programme for the EU-based Business Angels.

Business Angel School aims to broaden angel investors' competencies & strengthen awareness of important startup ecosystem & investment topics. Find out more about the Business Angel School programs in spring'21!

Women In Tech

Diversity doesn’t just matter. It also pays off in higher returns. According to the latest studies by PwC and BCG, startups led by female founders or co-founders perform 10% – 35% better over time and more likely to have IPOs and profitable acquisitions, despite being comparatively underfunded. We believe in Women in Tech and do our best to empower them.

Startups to Watch in 2021

Meet some of our promising portfolio companies that bring positive value and unique projects to the startup ecosystem.

Openface

What DeepTech and skincare could likely have in common?

All of it, if you are a brilliant team who launched a data-driven and AI-powered skin diagnostic service combined with a home-delivered personalized skincare kit. Learn more about Openface from Kris, Natalia, and Dina.

“Baltic Sandbox is not a typical accelerator. They are instead a partner that helps you to grow. The acceleration program takes place in Lithuania and includes mentors, investors, and industry experts. Additionally to this, Baltic Sandbox is running side events and pitching sessions at different international conferences.

We are happy with our partnership. Baltic Sandbox helped us to figure out the EU markets, legal questions, networking, and fundraising. After pitching at different events, talking to mentors and investors, we feel much more confident.

Sometimes, it feels like startups founded in Russia don't understand how to enter the EU markets: where to start, how to scale, how not to burn money. Baltic Sandbox turned out to be our point of entry.”

ZENOO

Is it even possible to disrupt the pet food industry? Yes, if you genuinely love pets, care about them, and combine them with the scientific approach. Meet Mindaugas and Agota from ZENOO – a personalized RAW food subscription service for our best friends.

"I'm Mindaugas Krisciunas, the Co-founder of the ZENOO. Together with Agota Jakutyte, who has extensive experience with physical products and brands, we decided to launch a traditional product and service. We applied the best technologies for our clients to subscribe to the product online and get the best food for their best four-legged friends without any headaches.

Even the idea of ZENOO sounds simple, the reality is much more complicated – in the traditional production chain, we add marketing, add sales and then add an element of the perfect client service. Then we place all of this online and offline - startup instantly becomes a complicated business to work in.

Baltic Sandbox team jumped into our project on day one and brought a vast network of mentors and advisors. They offerED a real hands-on and problem-solving approach. We're looking forward to what the next months will bring us."
 

ViaCorex

What do you think when you hear the word “procurement”? Outdated and expensive ERP systems?

Imagine a convenient eProcurement solution that gives you more control over your spendings combined with suppliers management solution. It’s called ViaCorex and brought to market by Julius and his team.

“Suppose I had to tell you about our experience with Baltic Sandbox in a few words. In that case, I’d mention – the family, friends, and full support.

With Baltic Sandbox, I have excessively widened my work and personal contacts in Lithuania, where we operate worldwide. We have traveled to numerous international events and conferences in the Baltics and Europe. If we ever need any introduction, it is always a matter of asking Baltic Sandbox for a bit of advice. Their team became our real friends. 

We didn’t even expect that such a thing as an acceleration program would turn out into such a level of support, attention, and problem-solving actions.”

SEARADAR

What comes to your mind when you hear the “yacht booking platform”? An exceptional and extra-expensive vacation option? Not if you ask the professional captains.

Yachts are their everyday life, and there are more such people in the world that you can imagine. Meet Dima and Max – co-founders of Searadar – a marketplace for professional captains where they book yachts globally.

“We were looking for a partner to launch at the EU markets, to get new clients, as well as the EU investors. Our founding team had a great experience in establishing and developing different businesses. However, this experience was limited to the CIS markets. We understood that we have to build our EU business from scratch, and we could benefit a lot from the right partner.

It turned out too good to be true – we didn’t just find a single partner but the whole Baltic Sandbox team.

What did we get? An extensive network and investors pipeline – in just one year, we met most of the opinion leaders in the EU venture industry, got plenty of hours of mentorship on marketing, strategy, etc. From the industry experts. We packaged our startup into investable products and acquired new customers from the EU. Thank you, guys!”

OVAL GLOBAL

Why does every person think about something very bureaucratic, slow, and heavy when hears the word insurance? Here comes OVAL to build a win-win solution, where the client is not a victim anymore and gets the compensation immediately. Three co-founders: Ilya, Timur, and Ilya bring a solution that saves time, energy, and emotions.
 

”What comes to our mind when we tell our partners about entering the EU market? It is undoubtedly Baltic Sandbox. We were continually looking for the right accelerator in the EU and attending many programs. Many accelerators' main idea - squeeze you out through 2-3 months and let you swim alone further, squeezing out other startups. 

Next, we finally met the Baltic Sandbox team. We felt from the first moments - we got into a warm family of professionals. Not just for 2-3 months but for the period we need! We always receive support and answers to any questions needed. Baltic Sandbox is not only an accelerator. It is a part of your team!”
