Startup Wise Guys

Wise Guys is the leading B2B accelerator in Europe for early stage startups with passion, founders and a vision.

Startup Wise Guys is a mentorship-driven accelerator program for early stage B2B startups, providing seed capital (up to €30K), office space and most importantly – world-class mentors. The intensive 3 month accelerator program is focused on validating, developing and selling products to business customers. Over 150 international and local mentors with B2B startup experience help startups move through those stages much faster than they would on their own. Founders are also prepared to sell their vision to investors, and the program culminates in a Demo Day, where startups get to present to venture capitalists and angel investors. Post program, startups join the alumni community of 145+ startups in more than 40 countries and become eligible for invite-only alumni events focused on business development, fundraising and experience sharing.

Mission: Help founders become entrepreneurs

Latitude59 is on! 🔥 Here are some highlights from our network and our plans for today!

📍 11:05/Blue stage - Our CyberNorth mentor Kieren Niĉolas Lovell will share his thoughts on Cyber security update.

📍 12:15/Blue stage - Tõnis Arro, Batch 6 alumni from Teamscope, will share his thoughts on Leadership 4.0.

📍 13:30/Yellow Hall - Marite Aleksandra Silava from Swedbank Latvia will be moderating a panel on “Perks vs Purpose: Winning solutions for talent attraction” with our legal mentor Valter Vohma as one of the panelists.

But between these speakers head over to the Demo area and chat with our alumni - Sport.id (Batch 2), Wiserstate (ex-Motivio Fintech I) and Zelos Team Management (Btch 12)! Rumor has it, that Zelos, has planned some volunteering game for you to try out that might lead you to our red corner as well!

[05/15/19]   Next week our first CyberNorth program startups and our team is going to check out Paranoia Cyber Security Conference for the first time. We’ve heard it’s awesome! Apart from CyberNorth batch, we will be bringing along some alumni from previous Fintech programs. If you are curious about, what cool cyber/fintech products and services they are developing, look for some SWG hoodies at the conference or join our side-event on May 20 with e-Estonia: E-Estonia Cybersecurity Evening.

🚀 Startups are often born from personal experience. One of our first CyberNorth batch teams, Cyex, co-founders was once tricked into buying a golden ring and that sparked his deep interest in understanding the logic behind tricking people and after a while it linked to cybersecurity.

Cyex is a 4 people team of 4 PhD candidates, and its 2 co-founders actually met at a PhD summer camp (we had no idea such thing exist). But don't let the academic background scare you, the other founder has been basically born with a computer by his side and has found a way to turn his hobby into business.

Cyex is a B2B service for organizations who want to manage and develop the cybersecurity knowledge of
their non-technical workforce. They let their clients find, track and improve human readiness in one place.

Btw, they are throwing a meetup on May 23: Human side of cyber security in organisations. Make them happy and join at Startup Wise Guys Tallinn office.

How to hire the first marketer for your team or startup |

📚 While our long term marketing mentor Andrus Purde is sharing his knowledge with our CyberNorth batch, here's quite a list of good tips from him to you on how to hire the right marketing person!

"The aim of hiring is to bring someone aboard who is either smarter about an area than you, or more interested in area than you. As a leader, you have to find the optimal balance between being supportive and helpful, and getting out of the way."

#SWGMafia, #wisewords, #mentor

🚀 Our Batch 14 members Jan and Matouš know each other since childhood and even though they’ve worked on other startups before, this is the first time they’ve put their heads together. As very technical guys they saw a place for improvement and now they are working together on Amio!

They believe that companies can leverage new messengers to provide faster and more accurate reply to customer inquiries. So imagine if you could postpone the package delivery from inside the Facebook Messenger with a click of a button or reschedule your bus ticket within WhatsApp! Amio as an omnichannel messaging API solves exactly this, by allowing companies to reach their customers on any messenger.

Btw, they are looking for junior sales person and an experienced developer. Maybe it's you?

🚀 How to go from a farmer to a startup founder? Gather all your knowledge about the grain trading process that you’ve done for seven years while managing a farm and build your own product that can change the culture of grain trading. That’s the story of our Batch 14 startup from Latvia AgroPlatforma. Industry specific knowledge has been reported repeatedly as a big part of the startup success story, so this might be the magic key for these guys.

SIA AgroPlatforma is a direct connection between farmers, grain buyers and stock market. They’ve moved the physical market to digital environment and made the grain deals effective and transparent.

They are expanding in the Baltics so if you know any grain growers in Estonia or Lithuania make sure to introduce them!

Our startups are tough! And it turns out business ideas can grow out of even terrorist fact-checking.

🚀 One of FakesRadar’s co-founders used to be a freelance fact-checker for international media. In 2014 he went for a fact-checking mission to Eastern Ukraine. This part of the story ended with him being held in a concentration camp. When released from it, he decided to retire from intelligence operations on the ground and move online. That’s how FakesRadar was born.

FakesRadar is one of the first CyberNorth Batch teams and they bring independent fact-checking to the browsing experience.

Share the most visible fakes in your industry and FakesRadar will deliver your links to the Facebook and Twitter users exposed to the fakes: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfjcjnsdiH-OBakpgcgxnxr1OwvOVHJ8ShNsaRgO2dJHo04kg/viewform
