We sat down with Denis, CEO of our startup ‘NeoSound’, who will speak at our Tech-Chill side-event ‘Scaling your startup in Europe‘ on Friday 22 February, to get a preview of some of their advice on scaling in the Baltics!

How did you find out about Startup Lighthouse?

We were approached by the Startup Lighthouse team to take part into Lisbon DDW.

Where did your startup begin, and how did being in this environment allow you to thrive?

We have started working in Belarus, then we were selected by Estonian accelerator in Latvia, pivoted and ended up with the new company in The Netherlands.  

What aspects make the Baltics the ideal place to scale up your business?
There is a difference between scaling business and starting a business. For startups from Eastern Europe, the easiest to go location to start would be definitely Baltics.
Do you have any words of wisdom about scaling up in another European country, for other startups?

There are not only Baltics on the landscape: I have seen some mature startups move from The Netherlands to Lisbon. They certainly have a reason to move there.

When attending TechChill, what will be your main objective (investment, finding new partners, etc)?
Now we are raising money to scale the product across Europe. Since Baltics was the starting point of our  journey, it is a natural thing to come to use the opportunity to come to TechChill in Riga and catch up with investors who already know you.
