The most exciting startup event in the Baltics is exploring the Big Shift

02/20/2020 9:00 am 02/21/2020 7:00 pm TechChill Riga, Latvia

Every February the TechChill conference transforms Riga into a global meeting hub for startups, investors, innovators, inspirators, and technology enthusiasts and provides its participants some of the best opportunities for networking, individual meetings, and deal-making in the Baltics, Nordics and Central Eastern Europe.


Early-bird tickets are available now:


“Our goal is to talk about technologies and processes already in motion, which will impact our lives in the coming years, as well as the people behind them.” Ernests Štāls, CEO of TechChill.


The two-day conference agenda will offer talks and panel discussions on the main drivers of the Big Shift – Greentech, Blockchain, and 5G – as well as Sales & Marketing and Founders Stories relevant for the Baltic region. In addition to the main agenda, there will be more than 15 exclusive side events – angel investor training, workshops, in-depth masterclasses, a job fair, and more. In previous years, one of the most anticipated TechChill events has been the Fifty Founders Battle. Fifty most promising attendee startups will pitch their ideas to get the main prize – 10 000 euros with no strings attached.


TechChill is a non-profit NGO that helps Latvian and Baltic startups to succeed by building a powerful knowledge base, skills, and networks. The organisation reinvests all its earnings back into the community by promoting startups around the world and organising events throughout the year.
