Startuper Smoothies team members co-founders

Meet Karolis and Lukas - Startupers behind Startuper’s Smoothies

They came up with Startuper’s Smoothies as a solution to a very personal problem. From a very young age, both of them were involved in ambitious entrepreneurial projects. Working late hours on their big ideas, they realized that they are not eating right. They decided that being a busy startuper is no excuse for not getting your nutrition right.

2013
Our paths have crossed for the first time at ISM University.
2014
Got into new ventures – started generating ideas, participating in different business competitions. The very first creation - a bar of chocolate with minerals.
2015
While studying at university we’ve noticed that there wasn’t enough time to eat properly and to stay full.
2016
With a team of scientists we’ve started creating a formula for 3h of fullness.
2017
Prototypes of the first smoothies.
2018
Smoothie development and testing.
2019
Long-awaited launch and introduction of Startuper’s Smoothies.
2020
Expansion to major retail chains, cooperation with offices and export to other countries. We are booming the market even in the time of COVID-19.

Startupers teamed up with experienced scientists and nutritionists to create a product for the modern individual. Everything from the formula of the smoothies to practical packaging was precisely thought through. There were no attempts to take the easy path. That is why, for example, the combo of 72 ionized minerals came from the distant Great Salt Lake in Utah, USA.

Years of developing and testing the formulas are now paying off. The nutritional innovation is sponsored by the EU, and the Agency for Science, Innovation and Technology (MITA), Lithuania’s main governmental agency for innovation. The project was also widely covered in Lithuania’s media. Today we are ready to share the good news with the world.
