Genesis will increase the number of educational and investment opportunities for technology businesses from Central and Eastern Europe. To do this, the company is bringing together startups and global partner companies in one ecosystem — TRMNL4 (Terminal Four).
This project focuses on two areas:
T4.Programs — educational programs for development and scaling of technology businesses.
T4.Community — a community that brings together tech founders and investors.
Among the project's partners are big tech companies like Meta, Amazon Web Services, Deel, and Zendesk. The network includes more than 40 venture capital funds that invest in startups from the CEE region and beyond, including ffVC, Market One Capital, SMOK Ventures, Presto Ventures, and others.
“Jiji, BetterMe, and Headway are successful Ukrainian technological products developed by Genesis at a global level. We have already created a unique business ecosystem for the Ukrainian market, and we’re going to continue sharing our experience with European entrepreneurs. TRMNL4 is a platform of opportunities for tech businesses, exchanging knowledge and networking,” said Artem Kopanev, COO at Genesis.
Genesis and Meta have been providing StartUp Academy training programs for founders since 2021. During this period, more than 120 startups have participated in the program, and seven of them attracted investments ranging from $100,000 to $1 million after completing the program. These fortuitous startups included Bloomcoding, Inputsoft, EasySales, and QuickShippersi.
The second part of TRMNL4 is T4.Community, a closed community, the members of which include more than 100 founders from different European countries. In particular, these members are from Ukraine, Poland, Czech Republic, Romania, Georgia, Lithuania, Estonia, and others.
"All opportunities from TRMNL4 are free. However, only the most motivated entrepreneurs can take part in T4.Programs or T4.Community after passing a preliminary selection. Our goal is to bring together ambitious entrepreneurs from Central and Eastern Europe and provide resources for quality growth: networking, business content, access to the best funds investing in CEE, and honest feedback from colleagues and our experts,” said Tetyana Ladanova, TRMNL4 Lead.
By the end of 2023, the team plans to launch a series of open online events from TRMNL4, as well as prepare for the new season of Genesis StartUp Academy together with Meta next year. Learn more about TRMNL4 on the website.
