Our National Leads for Lithuania
Meet Laurynas, our National Lead for Lithuania!
What is your background?
I have over 8 years of experience in the execution of Sunrise Valley Science & Technology park SMEs support activities and coordination of the ‘Western Union StartUp’ space: developing incubation processes, managing start-ups, serving teams with coaches and beneficial contacts, organising relevant events, seminars, and workshops. I have also been coordinating ClimateLaunchpad since 2015.
Why did you become a country lead?
Sunrise Valley’s mission is to develop an entrepreneurship and innovation support ecosystem. We believe that the future of this ecosystem belongs to nature friendly living and businesses without leaving a foot print.
Why do you think this competition is so important?
ClimateLaunchpad helps us to increase awareness about environmental problems between youth in Lithuania and it provides a platform which helps people solve global challenges being nature friendly and resource sustainable.
How does your organisation support cleantech start-ups?
Sunrise Valley supports cleantech start-ups with entrepreneurial support programs and complimentary consultancy. We have opened the Biotechnology Incubator in 2016 to provide preferential working conditions for bio-tech and clean-tech start-ups.
