Testimonials about 10 years of cooperation with KMTP

We have carried out a number of successful joint projects with KSTP. It is not only a reliable partner but also an institution contributing to creation of new jobs. For Lithuania currently it is an issue of topical relevance, therefore, the Park helping the youth to enter the labour market contributes to strengthening of the national economy. I wish that the cooperation between the Park and business were even closer.

We are on the move and we are glad that our work is valued, there is no need to prove to anybody that in global modern space only those may remain who bravely implement innovative ideas, apply them in business. It is important for us that our Park community would strengthen and we all would gradually grow, the geography of our activities would broaden, while enterprises were happy by that what we can provide ... I would like to thank everyone who was with us for ten years by the words of French philosopher Blaise Pascal: ‘The past and present are our means: the future alone is our goal..."
