Honouring Vilnius’ Unicorns

Wolficorn is a special award the City of Vilnius gives to unicorns (companies with USD 1 billion market cap) operating within the capital’s ecosystem. A statuette depicting a half-wolf/half-unicorn creature – the symbols of Vilnius and successful start-ups – is the trophy given to new companies joining the exclusive unicorn club. The statue was created by Egle Zvirblyte and is kept in the Start-Up Museum housed at Talent Garden Vilnius. Two unicorns – Vinted and Nord Security – were born in Vilnius.
