CHALLENGES FOR START-UPS: DEVELOPING TECHNOLOGIES TO HELP PEOPLE
The primary value of the Teltonika company group is help. We work to help people, society, our clients and partners, employees and young talents. This time we decided to help young businesses and technology enthusiasts who have plenty of innovative ideas.
Teltonika Telemedic and Teltonika SAS departments are participating in the “Scale-up Champions” initiative that unites European tech start-ups with mentors, investors, and corporations to help them grow. We have joined this project to share our two decades of experience in technologies and IoT and help start-ups successfully enter the global market.
The company group had to overcome countless different challenges before becoming one of the leaders in the development of IoT solutions. In 2020, we achieved spectacular results – we successfully maintained a 30 % growth during the pandemic. As stated by the founder and president of Teltonika Arvydas Paukštys, such growth is not accidental. “To achieve it, you need not only a will to grow but also necessary tools and resources. It is an accomplishment of many years of work,” says A. Paukštys. Therefore, we are ready to provide the whole infrastructure for development to those start-ups who will offer the best solutions to our challenges.
Our challenges are closely related to the company’s main value and aim to help people and save their lives. “According to global market statistics published by the World Health Organization (WHO), heart disease and diabetes are by far the most problematics diseases in the world. And there is constantly a shortage of technologies that could help to solve problems related to these diseases. Our aim is to select the best ideas. If we see that the presented solution is exactly what we are looking for, we will invite you to develop this idea further together with Teltonika,” says Martynas Osauskas, the CEO of Teltonika Telemedic.
