Vilnius is fearless and innovative because of the people who work and live in the city. The people leading the city’s biggest TECH sectors are the best example. Their achievements are astounding and are helping spread the word about Vilnius globally. And more often than not, they are behind initiatives that connect and galvanise the city’s business community.
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. Three unicorns – Vinted, Nord Security, and Baltic Classifieds Group – were born in Vilnius.
