The Baltics region is an increasingly important player in the European startup ecosystem. With a population of just over six million, Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania have produced multiple successful startups, including TransferWise, Bolt, and Vinted.

The Baltics is known for its advanced digital infrastructure and tech-savvy population, providing a fertile ground for innovation.

In fact, the Baltics have already produced 10+ unicorns.

The region’s startup scene can also count on pioneering government support, including startup visa programs and e-residency schemes allowing entrepreneurs and talents to anchor in the region, and attractive policies to attract foreign tech companies and retain homegrown successes.

Below we break venture capital into three distinct stages:

  • Startup stage ($0-15M rounds)
  • Breakout stage ($15-100M rounds)
  • Scaleup stage ($100M+ rounds)

This provides more consistent and timeless segmentation of the startup & venture capital landscape (more so than self-reported round labeling, which are applied inconsistently, especially between business cycles).

Spotlight: Baltics Deep Tech

What is Deep Tech?

Deep Tech is fundamentally new science and engineering. Deep Tech companies apply a novel scientific or engineering breakthrough for the first time in the form of a product. This means there is technical risk in getting the idea to actually work.

Deep Tech starts with an extended R&D phase and involves a higher share of technical staff compared to conventional ventures.

Deep Tech also often involves the development of hardware and/or IP which are more capital and time intensive.
