Kaunastic Startups FAQ
What is a startup?

Simply put, startup is a young company with great potential for innovation-based business development, striving to be recognised worldwide.

According to the official definition, startups are companies that operate in high-value added sectors, have extremely high growth potential and are able to ensure successful operation as the business scale increases. As a result of insufficient revenues, high operating or research and development costs, these young companies are often unable to operate in the long run due to an unsustainable business model, so an external investor such as a business angel or venture capital fund is sought to finance their activities.
