Why Estonia Is Better At Innovation Than...
Disclaimer: The purpose of this paper is not to bad-mouth or point fingers but to shine light on what I think is the core problem blocking innovation in Lithuania. Only when you identify the core of the issue can you try solving it, right? In this paper I will argue that the majority of problems in our country, especially the ones associated with innovation, are connected to a single denominator....
Kodėl Balsavimas Internetu Gali Pakeisti Lietuvą?...
Pirmas tinklaraščio postas lietuvių kalbą. Būkit gailestingi, lietuvių kalba niekada nebuvo stiprioji pusė. Šiandien kaip ir daugelis iš mūsų stovėjau ilgoje eilėje prie rinkimų būdelių. Daug žmonių. Jaunų, senų, žilų, vaikų. Net šunys ir tie varė balsuoti. Buvo labai malonus vaizdas. Nemalonus buvo turbūt tik laukimas bereikalingai ilgose eilėse. Kadangi turėjau nemažai laisvo laiko, aišku,...

Disclosure: I’m a startup guy, business developer, events organiser and advisor @ TransferGo. Here I express my views and encourage others to debate them. Thank you for spending your time reading this. I want to talk about the first 1% of your startup – that’s the idea. Entrepreneurs come up with many ideas, which at the moment of inception sound exciting enough to give you that...
The Reality 2 : Me 1 !
It’s been a while since I’ve blogged mainly because of an unexpectedly busy half a year. A lot of stuff has happened and I want to take a moment to reflect back on my experiences and off course take a look at what’s coming up next. Reality 2 – Me 1. Let me explain. During last half a year three significant events have shaped the path of my entrepreneurial career. Two failures and one success. ...

Build as little as possible.
I cannot emphasize enough how important it is for a startup to start testing your product as quickly as possible. And by The product I mean, only the core fraction of the technology (or service depending on the nature of the business) needed to solve the problem. NOT a singing/dancing public-availability ready, scalable technology, which does a lot of cool stuff. Cool stuff for you that is. If...

What's the most important thing in business?
That’s people who you start doing business with. Your founders. All other people will come and go but the founders are going to be ones helping you make or break the businesses. Choose them wisely. Try to get out of your comfort zone. Picking friends you love socialising with doesn’t necessarily makes them great co-founders. Stresses that you will be facing in a realtime startup...
Back to writing...
Hi, I’ve decided to come back to writing my personal blog for a few reasons: There is a ton of action happening and I want it documented. There is a ton of lessons I’ve learned the hard way and it would be mean of me not to share them. I like writing. I like to engage in discussion around the ideas I write about. Promises: I will not waste your time with lengthy posts. I...

TDE - The last day
Yes today is the last day of the Difference engine program. Tomorrow either me or my colleague will be pitching Pinevio to investors to get £100.000. Both me and Mindaugas have been rehearsing the presentation for 3 weeks already and we both feel quite confident that we should be able to deliver it well. On Thursday we are delivering the same presentation in London for a more high profile...

TDE - David Anderson session
Today we are going to Boho in Middlesbrough to have a presentation preparation session with David Anderson. Hopefully will get some relevant feedback. Since it’s less than a week left until the presentations we are not willing to make any substantial changes in the presentation structure. Let’s see how it goes. Oh and by the way, the weather today is absolutely incredible, the first...

It has been a while since my last post. We are approaching the very end of the difference engine. Next Tuesday and Thursday we will be pitching Pinevio to a bunch of investors in Newcastle and London. The time of at least some certainty is over, in a few weeks we will be leaving the haven of an incubator and will be developing our product in real market, acquiring real users. We already have a...
