"As the capital of Lithuania and one of the largest financial centres in the Baltic region, it may not be so surprising that Vilnius also boasts some major small-business talent. Eighty-six companies based there made this year's Inc. 5000 Europe. The fastest-growing private business in Vilnius, BGroup, produces and supplies steel to more than 15 European countries. That company brought in roughly EUR 13.8 million in revenue in 2013, representing a three-year revenue growth of 2,727 percent. While Vilnius is known for its iconic Old Town - the largest surviving medieval town in Northern Europe - the city has plenty to offer entrepreneurs of the future," the publication said.
