"FIRSTPICK is an accelerator and venture capital fund investing in tech companies across the Baltics. It‘s not a regular venture fund. And here‘s why. FIRSTPICK supports founders from the idea to the growth stage. The team are like coaches that run side-by-side while founders train for the marathon. Here they benefit from a bulletproof combination of investment and know-how shared through the fund‘s pre-acceleration and acceleration programs. The core members of the FIRSTPICK have gathered experience by working with 100+ startup founders in their early steps. This experience is multiplied by the support from leading Baltic tech community members. They provide FIRSTPICK’s portfolio startups with precious early market access, impactful partnerships, and deep expertise for the growing community and portfolio of 14 companies. Our capital consists of funds from private investors, the founding team, and an investment from the Lithuanian state-financed INVEGA fund, which is part of the Accelerator 2 program, funded by the Innovation Promotion Fund."
