Conceived and built by Italian architects in the 17th century, Sapieha park was originally a home to the palace of the famous Lithuanian noble family of the same name, until the 19th century, when it was sold to the Tsar.
Initially the palace was repurposed to house a military hospital. After adding more buildings to the palace complex, the site continued to provide medical services until 2015.
In 2015, when the hospital was transferred to new premises, private investors partnered with Vilnius City Municipality to refashion the existing park and its buildings into a bold new vision: Vilnius Tech Park.
Today Vilnius Tech Park serves as the biggest ICT startup hub in the Baltics and Nordics, uniting international startups, tech companies, VCs, accelerators, incubators and other ecosystem players with a mutual goal – to shape the region’s startup ecosystem and grow together internationally.
On June 16, 2017, series of sculptures “Dar kartą” (Once again) by Donatas Jankauskas-Duonis were presented for the community and visitors of “Vilnius Tech Park”. Sculptures reflect the illustration of human evolution: apes are portrayed as evolving species and the series is finished with the Homo Sapiens. Exposition of this project is the first step towards strengthening Sapiegos Park as a space for interdisciplinary partnerships. Project was organised by “Vilnius Tech Park” together with “Pakrantė”. Project was partially financed by Lithuanian Council for Culture and “8devices”.
Our dedicated team is committed to building a thriving Vilnius Tech Park community – from daily service management and event organisation to connecting people both inside and outside the park.
Representing Vilnius Tech Park shareholders, the Council of 9 has a vital role in shaping annual activities, exploring financing possibilities and performing other functions of advisory nature.
Comprised by 7 leading experts in Lithuania’s ICT market, the committee takes charge of building Vilnius Tech Park community by selecting Lithuanian and/or foreign startups and enterprises, willing to relocate to Vilnius Tech Park.
