LIFT99 has been operating a coworking centre in Telliskivi (Tallinn, Estonia) for some time. The insights collected from this experience allowed the founders, primarily Ragnar Sass, who is one of the most experienced founders and investors in the region, to really dig into what founders and aspiring startups need the most. Accurate and meaningful matchmaking is something that all founders deem to be extremely important, regardless of the development stage of the startup. As LIFT99 themselves say, their software plan has many steps: first, to gather a high-quality network inside the software; and second, to develop the AI smart enough to make matches participants couldn’t even realize they needed.
The list of investors include Taizo Son, United Angels, Ahti Heinla, Passion Capital, Stefan Glaenzer, Adam Omar Al-Shanti and Agrello.
Partner Valter Võhma advised the transaction from Hedman Partners’ side.
