I have been lucky to be selected as the startup ecosystem builder in the Soft-Landing mission in #Paris. It was such an inspiring experience. Amazing fellow colleagues from #Netherlands, #France, #Israel, #Romania, #Germany, #Lithuania, #Italy, #UK and the #US, top-level investors, researchers, business leaders with whom we had a pleasure to talk to and, of course, a given opportunity to attend the mind blowing Viva Technology conference in Paris. For the Lithuanian startups, I highly recommend to keep an eye on Incubateur IMT Starter, Station F and Genopole Réussir en biotechnologies’s startup acceleration and incubation programs. These programs might help to take your businesses into completely new level.

The Vilnius Blockchain Soft-Landing mission was a great opportunity to discover the current advancements in the field of blockchain & cryptocurrencies as well as the position and the initiatives of the Lithuanian ecosystem. The Vilnius blockchain ecosystem is very dynamic and has full support from both the government and institutions such as the Bank of Lithuania who are actively involved in creating favorable conditions and assisting the start-up to thrive and grasp the emerging opportunities related to blockchain & crypto technologies. The Lithuanian entrepreneurs and start-up are highly motivated; the recent ICO and fundraising success stories position Lithuania as one of the key international players in the Blockchain landscape and certainly one of future leading European ecosystems in the field. The program of the Soft-Landing mission covered a broad range of dimensions and allowed the participants to discover the local ecosystem, establish connections with regional and European ecosystem builders, meet the start-up and the support organizations from Vilnius, listen to top-level speakers (start-up founders, BlockChain opinion leaders, investors …) presenting high-tech topics, meet them in person and discuss about their vision, priorities and future collaboration opportunities. The organization was great: the Startup Division team, CIVITTA and their partners (Blockchain Centre Vilnius, Rise Vilnius, Vilnius Tech Park) were very supportive and professional, answering all our questions, making connections and providing guidance. The overall experience was very positive so I highly recommend participating to one of the Soft-Landing missions. Moreover, the Lithuanian ecosystem is very dynamic and welcoming, so if you’re looking for reliable and skilled partners, you should definitely go to Vilnius !

The one message that was repeated time and again is that Boston is an open ecosystem, where everyone knows and refers to each other. A culture with a great sense of 'giving it back', resulting in a great amount of business coaches from various aspects of the ecosystem ready to help a hand and share their knowledge. This in combination with the high concentration of large corporations, incubators, accelerators and funds, most of which are literally a walk away, makes Boston a very interesting place to grow your startup, especially for B2B solutions as well as Deeptech and Life Sciences technologies.
