Startups

Agency for Science, Innovation and Technology (MITA) helps to establish startup companies by providing financial support for research activities. During 2012-2013 period 17 startups have been established by young entrepreneurs from universities.   

Interactive learning tools

The product is intended to be used as a toy for children in speech and/or communication development exercises. Start-up is looking for the partnership in: Device has voice recorder –player and radio frequency identification (RFID) reader. Pre-recorded phrases (specially chosen by speech/language therapist) are linked to the RFID tags. These tags can be added to child’s environmental objects (toys, pictures, etc.). When child brings the toy closer to the object with RFID tag, device reads tags unique identification number and checks for corresponding phrase. If match is found, sound naming this object is played. Device can be used by children of various ages. 

Start-up is looking for the partnership in:  

  • development and application of the product and idea;
  • commercialization of the product;
  • joint projects.

Smart technology solution for disabled

The main goal of the product - to provide intelligent computer interface for the persons who have high level disabilities by employing their voluntary controlled eye motions, i.e., gaze. 

The small motions of the user’s eye are captured using special mini camera and dedicated software which translates those motions to the mouse cursor position or special command to the external device (depends on the application, for example, the control of electrical wheelchair). All calculations are done in the real time; therefore, the users can interact with the computer programs, such as Skype, directly without controlling own arms or assistance of special staff. bilities by employing their voluntary controlled eye motions, i.e., gaze.

Company believes that such affordable product can forefeel the need of the disabled persons to be more independent and more valuable.

Molecular biotechnology 

Company “MeetAGene -  recently established Lithuanian company formed of the specialists in molecular biology and informatics working in the field of cancer biology. It is possessing a recently established bioinformatics algorithm to analyze data of global research databases to uncover the links of genomics information with the biology of disease of interest (or the other biological phenomenon).

 Such analysis which is offered as a service for the interested party (for example the team carrying on the biotech project) would reduce the experimental stage of the project and would save the time and resources otherwise consumed for the experimental research. To perform the analysis the team of MeetAGene needs the primary data (formulation of the problem, idea of the possible solution of the problem) from the interested party.
