BaltCap April Newsletter
28 April 2022
Dear partners,
This newsletter finds us on the 64th day of Russia’s war in Ukraine. For more than two months, we have witnessed brutal attacks on a free country and its people in the very heart of Europe.
This reminds us that the building of Europe is far from over. BaltCap’s dedication to build companies that evolve and constantly develop, with the potential to benefit and transform the societies where they operate, needs to continue and with even stronger urgency.
The last decades in the Baltics have proved that it is possible to operate outside the comfort zone, focusing on defense and national security while spurring growth, bold ideas and providing a supportive environment for numerous world-conquering businesses.
Let's keep our sharp view and the desire to grow into the world while integrating into the European political and economic institutional architecture. Hopefully, our latest investment in Lithuania’s second tech unicorn and an outstanding Latvian green energy producer exit are an inspiration.
Разом до перемоги!

Simonas Gustainis
Managing Partner
