Startup Scene Survey: Deep dives

This year’s Baltic startup scene report has been built with a new ingredient – the Baltic Startup Scene survey. It has been conducted for the first time to gather a more tailored insight into 2020 and the startup scene’s outlook ahead.

The insights drawn from the survey provided a valuable base for further investigation of several major topics emerging from the past year’s global events, such as hybrid work, the impact of Covid-19, the outlook ahead, and more. To explore the more in-depth analysis of these topics, read the “deep dives” at the end of the report.
