TechChill is the largest event in the Baltic region and took place on 26-28 April 2023 in Riga, Latvia. There came more than 3,000 participants from 25 countries, including 225 investors and more than 500 startups, gathered in one place over three days.
Annija Mežgaile, CEO of TechChill adds: “From a party 12 years ago to over 3000+ participants attending TechChill’s main event and 15+ side events – we’ve come a long way. Today, TechChill is the place to come to explore the Baltic startup ecosystem, meet international investors, and, above all, it’s about building a global community.”.
The conference provides panel discussions and presentations on the main stage, as well as a Startup Zone, side events, individual consultations and the largest drone show of its kind in the Baltics.
“Baltic countries are the next startup nations. The original “startup nation” is Israel – everyone knows it. This region has a lot of similarities to Israel – very small local markets, so our founders, from day one, need to build global companies. We have a strong tech talent pool with excellent English skills and a hustle mentality to go and tackle big markets. That generates a snowball effect, and with scaleups growing, they’re educating and training future talents, who would create new startups.” – Andris Bērziņš, Managing Partner at Change Ventures.
