25 panelists with broad expertise discussed four distinct topics:
- Lithuanian Startup Ecosystem. The role of the diaspora in the ever-growing Lithuanian start-up ecosystem. Success cases and opportunities to tap into.
- Expats in strategic roles. Global professionals on boards and other strategic roles of Lithuanian and overseas companies: real-life experiences and new opportunities.

GLL Summer Gathering 2019
The first edition of the GLL Summer Gathering was a long afternoon of extended networking and global experience sharing from our community and friends which turned into the curiosity rollercoaster.
By stepping away from the business as usual, we tapped into global trends, issues, events of witch Lithuania(ns) have been a part of. From there, we explored possibilities to open more doors for Lithuania’s global presence.
What started with sharing turned into the big stage of conversation with all those who gathered at the artistic venue of the National Art Gallery with the view upon river Neris.
