“Growing together with the Lithuanian innovation and technology ecosystem, growing up as a technology park, business incubator and accelerator, we have accumulated diverse experience, formed our identity, and refined the most important activities and working principles. In recent years, the development of R&D innovation zones and the creation of attractive conditions for the growth and development of innovative companies in Vilnius region have become our most important strategic direction, so we have decided to choose a name that better reflects our activities and allows smoother communication in foreign markets” says Northtown Vilnius CEO dr.
