Autumn and chilly weather may be approaching fast, yet it is never cold with Startup Sauna, the biggest Northern and Eastern European accelerator, in Riga. Yesterday, on September 18, they were back again to offer a one day coaching event to local startups, helping them become better.
‘Autumn needs to start in style,’ was our goal in mind while planning September’s monthly meetup. Thus, we invited two inspiring startups – TrackDuck from Lithuania and Browserbite from Estonia – to ignite the Latvian crowd. Not only they shared their stories, they also gave some tips on sales and traction. What did we note down? Sell wise, sell creatively.
On August 22-24th the very first Digital Startup Academy took place in Riga. From 26 applications, only 10 teams were selected and joined an intensive bootcamp-type weekend where they had a chance to improve their business ideas. In the end, Furnny was announced as the winner of the academy.
It was not that long ago when AirDog was announced as the most crowdfunded Latvian startup on Kickstarter ever. The news about them did spread fast anyway. Yet, their tech factor, leading to a winning strike, was still a bit mysterious, and we at TechHub Riga were eager to fill the gap. We invited AirDog’s team to our August meetup so they could reveal their story. What’s the lesson that stuck in mind and showcased their tech factor? You make your own success.
