The perfect speed for modern business
So what is so special about ICT in Lithuania? Let’s start with the infrastructure, the backbone of any ICT business. Lithuania is 1st in the EU in terms of both its broadband speed and fibre-to-premises penetration. Businesses established here are already reaping the rewards of this, and in 2015 the country was voted 1st globally for fulfilling business requirements for communication technology by the IMD World Competitiveness Yearbook.
We have the talent to help you grow
Then there’s the talent, the key to real company growth. Every year more ICT professionals enter the workforce in Lithuania than in any other Baltic State, and our education system is switched on to the importance of ICT. What’s more, through such public-private initiatives as Techcity Vilnius and the NFQ IT academy, our university system has been able to successfully tailor itself to the needs of ICT industry. And ranking 1st in the CEE for its number of Mathematics, Technology and Science graduates, we produce the kind of professional you need.
But why just listen to us
Our ICT sector is dynamic and fluid, and quick to adapt to and absorb new ideas and practices. We are also not short on creativity and innovation. You need only look to the Game development industry as proof of this: in 2014, attracted by the country’s tech savvy talent and business friendly environment, Game Insight and Charlie Oscar were the first gaming companies to establish studios in Lithuania. So positive was the buzz they generated that within six months there were already 8 further games company game development projects in the pipeline.
