Soft-Landing kicks-off in Vilnius

Soft-Landing Kick-Off took place in Vilnius, Lithuania in December where partners gathered for the first time to Kick-Off the big great project. Soft-Landing will be reinforcing startup ecosystems for high growth tech startups by interconnecting and creating new synergies between 4 different Startup hubs across Europe in addition to building strong bridges to the US and India.

As a part of a kick-off, Startup Division organised a Startup Ecosystem TRAINíng – training on an actual train! Startup Ecosystem TRAINíng connected main startup ecosystems in Lithuania and beyond.

9 startup ecosystem hub veterans from London, Berlin, Paris, Lisbon, Prague, Warsaw, Zoetermeer, Vilnius and Kaunas shared the insights of each ecosystem, connected to community and startups on-board. Startup Ecosystem TRAINíng gathered 100 participants eager to learn, share and network, 2 startups voluntarily pitched on board presenting their startups to passengers.

In addition to great speeches and networking in such unconventional location, the whole trip from Vilnius to Kaunas and back was accompanied with music, snacks and drinks. Thanks to KTU startup space who greeted Startup Division Train in Kaunas, and delivered presentations about Kaunas ecosystem at the station‘s conference room.

Startup Ecosystem TRAIN‘ing was a magnificent adventure! Follow Startup Division for future events!
