Hot Summer? Think about refreshing

Jul 18, 2017. Provided by: Heinz Fiedler


It is (more or less) warm summer in the Northern Hemisphere. But, possibly it is time to think about refreshing coolness of February in Riga?  TechChill is the key event of the Latvian startup community opening the season with the oldest, loudest and coolest annual startup and tech insider event in Latvia.
Early bird ticket sales for the event to be held February 8-9, 2018 in Riga have opened already. Tickets at reduced prices are available for online reservation until October 4, 2017.
Since 2012 each year in February TechChill is bringing together the most promising startups from the region, global investors and business angels, students and tech enthusiasts for inspiring stories, deals and new connections. A two day agenda across two stages will include 80 speakers, including experienced founders, innovators, startup community leaders, tech media, investors and top experts in their field.
Riga is booming with young people with outstanding ideas taking advantage of good infrastructure and life quality, one of the fastest internet speeds in the world and easy access to anywhere in Europe. Latvia’s ecosystem provides a great mix of reasonable startup costs, access to international entrepreneurial talent and capital, startup friendly regulation and excellent geographical connections. TechChill is the fast-track introduction to the Baltics.
TechChill is organized by TechHub Riga, a non-profit NGO founded in 2012 to help local young entrepreneurs improve and become more competitive. It is a platform that helps technology startups grow their professional networks and develop their ideas faster and more effectively.
