Rytis Vitkauskas

Partner at Lightspeed Venture Partners

Rytis Vitkauskas is Partner at Lightspeed Venture Partners in Europe. He’s been part of the European tech scene as either entrepreneur, venture or angel investor for over a dozen years. Rytis learned his entrepreneurial lessons early in life; at age 14, he started his first company, a white box PC assembly business. Later on, after his studies as a proud first ever Lithuanian at Harvard Business School, he joined Summit Partners to invest in the leading tech companies in Europe, backing the likes of Avast (LST:AVST) and Acturis. After a while, he left VC to start another business, a mobile ticketing software company called YPlan, which raised capital from some of the top VCs globally and ultimately was acquired by the leading lifestyle media group, Time Out Group (AIM:TMO). After a short sabbatical, he found himself back as a VC at a European fund Target Global, and now, at Lightspeed.
