I now run Prototron start-up fund

On April 2, 2014, in In English, by Siim Lepisk

From April 2014 I’m the CEO of Prototron. Prototron is a start-up fund that gives money to teams to turn their great ideas into first working prototype.

History

  • Prototron was founded in 2012 by Swedbank, Tallinn Technical University and Tallinn Science Park Tehnopol.
  • Since then we have had 6 rounds of funding with more than 500 applications/ideas.
Essence

  • We are filling the gap between the ideas and working prototypes so that our alumni will be able to generate the first sales from their working prototype.
  • We invest up to 30’000€ per start-up and ask 0% share. Of course we prefer the owner’s contribution to be as big as possible.
  • Our focus areas age Greentech, Electronics, Mechatronics and ICT. In ICT projects have to have complex business logic that IP rights can be protected, and/or cannot be easily copied.
  • Prototron is the only fund with a track record in Estonia, that finances building prototypes.

Magistritöö kirjutamine

On October 26, 2011, in Eesti keeles, by Siim Lepisk

Olen viimasel ajal üsna hõivatud oma EBS EMBA/MBA töö ekspertintervjuude läbiviimise ja töö kokkukirjutamisega.

Töö tuleb esitada eelkaitsmiseks juba 3. novembril, 14. novembril on eelkaitsmine, 24. novembril lõplik esitamine, 5-9 detsembril lõppkaitsmine ja 15. detsembril lõpuaktus.

Kuivõrd eelkõige peavad tavapärased tööülesanded täidetud olema, tuleb igapäevaselt rakendada halastamatult produktiivset ajaplaneerimist ja ülejäänud teemadele minimaalselt aega pühendada. Palun siis mõistvat suhtumist kui ma telefonikõnedele ei vasta vms. Tavaliselt e-mail või SMS ikka aitab ühendust võtta.

Uuendatud 7.12.2011: MBA töö sai kaitstud hindele “Suurepärane”. Peagi tuleb töö kokkuvõte ka siia blogisse ja mu Slideshare’i kontole nähtavale.
