Last summer the city of Vilnius, Lithuania teamed up with private investors to renovate 19th century buildings and turn them into the biggest, most complex and vibrant startup ecosystem. Located in an actual park just outside Vilnius old town, Vilnius Tech Park is about to be officially opened this November.
Meanwhile, check out how historical buildings, some of which were not even suitable for use because of their condition, became modern, vibrant and creativity inducing space, uniting VC funds, accelerators, incubators, coworking space and startups of different levels under one roof.
Originally the premises were built in the park in 19th century
After 200 years, turning 9000+ sq. meters of rundown space to vibrant offices was a challenge
And we were happy to take it
And turned to local craftsmen to create new things from the ones we found in the premises as a reminder that anything can be renewed and improved with some creativity
The rules have changed
700+ talented entrepreneurs can grow their business with help of infrastructure partners, located under the same roof
And induce their creativity with historical background
And modern perks
With a park of 80’000 sq m surrounding the premises, Vilnius Tech Park became a prime space for those wanting to stay outside the box
