From drones to HR, from developer tools to e-commerce solutions, event production and more — here they are — 10 startups that have gotten through a tough selection process among 400 others and are selected for Startup Wise Guys 12th acceleration program. Taking into account broad geographic spectrum of applications — from Baltics to India and Armenia, as well as fierce competition, we can say for sure — worth to watch these guys'n'girls!
After having numerous batches with great variety of nationalities, this batch for a change could be named a Baltic one. There are 3 Estonian, 2 Lithuanian and 1 Latvian startup on board. Armenia and Ukraine continue their strong position in application process and a team per country has gotten in the accelerator.
While having plenty of applicants from Eastern Europe is an established trend, it is not that typical to attract Western European founders for acceleration in the Baltics. Lately, however, there has been increasing interest, probably mostly due to Estonian unicorns and great marketing efforts. Similar tendency can be observed for Indian founders, who are willing to explore European market and see Baltics as a gateway to do that.
