WOMEN in TECH

Fall 2019, Vilnius, Lithuania

Baltic Sandbox Accelerator

We would love to invite you to apply for the “Women in Tech Batch ” for female founders (and co-founders) from the globe, developing Fintech, B2B SaaS, Social Impact, and DeepTech startups.

We see this batch as an opportunity to empower exceptional teams from the globe, to boost their expertise, expand their network and offer them funding opportunities from the most credible EU/USA VCs, angels, and institutional investors.

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.

So we are launching our Fall’19 Batch to contribute to closing the gap between female lead startups and venture capital, which at the end of the day will result in increasing sustainability and profits in the global tech ecosystem.

How to know you are a match?

We are focused on the following projects from the globe:

  1. FEMALE FOUNDERS from the globe or startups where female co-founders own 50%+ equity
  2. OUTSTANDING TEAM English speaking open-minded teams developing Fintech, B2B SaaS, Social Impact, and DeepTech startups
  3. WORKING PRODUCT You have to have a working product or beta, be ready to go-to-market, and have your first customers
  4. EU LEGAL ENTITY Non-EU startups are required to register a company in Lithuania and obtain Lithuanian Startup Visa
