Kaunas initiatives

Kaunas offers mentorship and all the necessary tools to shape the internal processes of a startup.

We know that practice is as important as theory. Therefore, in Kaunas, young entrepreneurs can execute market tests for their services and products, learn more about successful business practices and become part of the Kaunas startup community.
