Told Me What I Needed to do to Realize my Dream
Awesome team with great industry knowledge and huge connections network. Around a half year ago, wrote a quick email asking for investment. In no time I met Rokas and Tomas, they came up with some heavy questions in the very begining and eventually backed off, explaining the reason and giving some homework asignments and introductions. Came out with great advice and some kickass introductions that eventually helped me to raise money and start working on developing my project.
