Lithuanian Startup & VC Ecosystem Report

The entrepreneurial landscape of Central and Eastern Europe has been nothing short of spectacular in recent years, with the region's venture capital and startup ecosystems displaying an extraordinary resilience and growth trajectory. From 2017 to 2022, the CEE ecosystem in terms of deal value expanded nearly fivefold, carving out a path of progress and growth.

However, 2023 brought a sobering reality check showing the region’s dependence on global markets.  According to Vestbee’s recent report, global funding in the first quarter of 2023 took a staggering hit, plummeting by 53% compared to the same period in the preceding year. What's more, this decline spread across every funding stage. In CEE countries, VC investments, which had soared to €1.1 billion in Q4 2022, contracted significantly to €600 million in Q1 2023.

In our effort to provide insights into startup ecosystems across Central and Eastern Europe, we are launching a series dedicated to exploring the key players and stakeholders within this dynamic landscape. We strongly believe that delivering organized and easily accessible information is essential for understanding the complexities of the business environment.

So without further ado, let’s start the series with Lithuania!

Introduction to Lithuania 

The Lithuanian startup ecosystem is one of the fastest growing in the CEE region, providing a promising landscape for entrepreneurs and investors. According to Dealroom’s report, the combined enterprise value of startups founded and headquartered in the country has grown 16.8x between 2017 and 2022, as regional startups are now worth €9.5B. 

This impressive growth in the ecosystem size has been facilitated by many factors, including favorable government regulations, open data policy, and a friendly business environment. Lithuanian programs such as Startup Visa and Startup Employee Visa are good examples of beneficial foreign policies that aim to attract skilled entrepreneurs from other countries by providing them with a temporary residence permit for up to a year, enabling a more dynamic flow of inward FDI’s. 

The country also boasts a big pool of skilled software developers, which results in the dynamic growth of hi-tech industries. As Vilnius Tech Fusion highlights, the fintech sector is leading the national industry - in 2022 Lithuania was the 10th country in the world for fintech developments, with Vilnius mentioned as the largest fintech hub in the EU in terms of licensed companies. The legal regulations are however one of the reasons this has occurred - even Revolut is regulated in this country. Other segments which have been gaining traction in recent years include ICT & game development, security, life sciences, AI, software, transportation, data science, and more.

Lithuanian Venture Capital scene - funding data 

Lithuania hasn’t been immune to recent market fluctuations and a general economic downturn observed on the continent. Nevertheless, according to the 2022 yearly report created by Dealroom and Startup Lithuania, the size of the country's startup ecosystem has been growing very dynamically, especially in the years 2019-2022 (with a dip in 2020). According to Dealroom, Lithuania ranks 6th amongst all CEE countries for 2022 Venture Capital investment, and 3rd for VC investment per capita. 2021 was a record-breaking year for the country, in terms of all funding secured by startups, however, the expansion was halted by 2022’s political and economic decline and as a result, Lithuanian startups raised 36% less capital. And we don’t have much data for 2023 yet but it’s visible that there has been an even more significant freeze in VC investment activities this year. 

It is also worth noting that the ecosystem has been continuously characterized by good availability of funding. According to Vestbee’s reports in 2021 Lithuanian startups raised over 450M (however, more than half of this sum - €250M - was actually raised by a single startup, Vinted, in its Series F), and €259M in 2022. Additionally, as Dealroom reports,  at the beginning of 2023, Lithuania was a home of 740+ startups, with a total of  more than €8B in combined ecosystem value. 

 As Startup Lithuania reports, 2022 was a year of significant milestones for the Lithuanian ecosystem. The country saw the emergence of its second unicorn NORD Security and the biggest exit in its history - a successful sale of MailerLite for €84M. What is more, angel investing was more rampant than ever, growing by 40% in 2022 and amounting to €14,5M. It is however to be determined how the global slowdown of 2023 will affect angel investing in the upcoming quarters.

Funding rounds 

To get a better understanding of the Lithuanian ecosystem and its growth let’s take a closer look at the biggest and most prominent funding rounds secured by top startups.
