Vieta is a chat for projects that was born around two years ago, when our co-founder Gabija Grusaite, who was a freelance writer and art curator then, felt the frustrating lack of solid communication tools for creative people in order to organise multiple work and personal projects with constantly changing teams.
Gabija offered Justas Janauskas, her partner in crime, work, and life, to create a tool for such needs of young professionals. Justas had just successfully exited one of the biggest startups in Lithuania, Vinted, and he was ready to pursue this new idea seeing great potential in it. That is how Vieta came about.
This abstract idea of creative individuals wishing they could work and communicate efficiently soon found its form: “Yes, we need something to help us separate and organise different aspects of our lives. A chat with file storage, preferably” was the most common request. Therefore, Vieta is so much more than a simple communication tool – it can provide a structure, a convenient form of file sharing, and, in the future, many more features that are exciting for people who don’t settle for average.
Vieta means “a place” in Lithuanian – a very fitting name as Vieta aims to be the place where people can facilitate their creativity and focus on things that matter. MVP has been launched in October 2019, while the product is constantly improving with new features and performance upgrades.
