November is a month of announcements, and we are pleased to introduce our new strategic partner Lattelecom. The largest provider of the internet and TV services in Latvia will now provide Internet and WiFi infrastructure at TechHub Riga’s new co-working space, as well as the live broadcasts of our monthly Meetups and the TechChill Baltics conference.
TechHub member, HiredByMe, is today launching a new platform to make the contractor hiring process more efficient by providing full, honest assessments. The site represents a major shift from traditional UK referencing by collating meaningful feedback data rather than solely providing employment dates. The brainchild of ex-financial services managers Simon Bichara, Dave Mason and Nick Buller, HiredByMe is set to create a smarter recruitment process.
With the rapid progress of the Latvian startup scene, TechHub Riga is launching a new mentoring program, available to members from November. Scheduled, regular mentoring by industry professionals will help startups improve their technical knowledge base, solve business-related issues and foster their growth.
You have heard of successful business stories where startups go through the fires of hell to achieve their dreams. What if you knew you could help dozens of such entrepreneurs build great companies? Reaching a new stage of development, TechHub Riga launches a fundraising campaign and invites everyone to help building future startup stories in Latvia today. In the end, it takes as little as a desk and a mug for a startup to have a better chance of success.
You dream of having your own startup or already have one in the early stages? You believe you have what it takes to create the next Infogr.am or Skype? TechHub Riga Startup Academy is now open for applications to its second intake, taking place on November 22-23rd in Riga, and invites you to join.
A startup journey becomes easier if there are good stories that motivate along the way. In a busy evening of October 9th we decided to offer that helping hand and invited Taxify and a funding panel, featuring Latvian VCs, to make the headlines on the TechHub Riga meetup stage. What did we learn? ‘Let’s have a startup’ is a decision that creates us.
Have you heard our exciting news? The countdown has begun to the biggest TechHub in the world!
It’s TechHub Shoreditch, and in just four weeks, we’ll open our front door wide to our brand new space. Our members keep growing and other startups tell us they can’t get enough of our team spaces at TechHub Old Street where they can have a private office but still be part of the awesome TechHub community. So we’re creating more!
