Next Thursday we invite you to meet The Difference Engine in Vilnius. It is a UK based accelerator program which follows Techstars mentorship-based model and offers fairly good startup opportunities with 20k GBP investment, thirteen weeks of incubation and introductions to 100+ mentors along with the deal. A Lithuanian team – Geogoer – has already stepped out of the forge of this accelerator and will be present in the event to share experience as well. The Difference Engine is bringing along Stewart Townsend, startup master, previously behind Sun Startups Essentials programme, who is also one of the mentors, and Annely Lautre of UK Trade and Investment. The trip this summer is to spread the good word about how open The Difference Engine is and to invite the more startups to participate. Together with the founder, another TDE startup is comming Jonathan Shrago from Tagorize, a Seedcamp 2009 finalist.
The event will take place at the formerly usual place in restaurant Pegasus (Didžioji g. 11, Vilnius, map), at next Thursday (07-15th 18:00). We expect the event to last approximately 2 hours, and the space will be open longer should the networking wage on.
During the event we expect:
- Presentation from The Difference Engine (followed by short Q&A)
- Short speeches by key speakers
- Pitchers from Lithuanian startups to show what Lithuania has
- Networking session that is likely to include discussion with the guest about accelerators
Everyone is invited (the event is free) and welcomed to contribute. If you feel you could add to speeches / pitchers drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
