About us - TechChill

TechChill celebrates the best of the Baltic startup community by bringing together energetic founders, relentless entrepreneurs and passionate techies from across the region for a two-day tech chill. Literally.

Having grown from a small grassroots movement of like-minded tech enthusiasts, TechChill currently boosts over a thousand annual attendees, including VC’s, investors, mentors and the region’s most up-and-coming startups.

This year’s agenda will focus on startup superheroes – breaking down the DNA of fearless game changers, innovators and frontier explorers who will share their ultimate behind the scenes takes on startup successes and failures.

​WELCOME TO THE BALTICS

The Baltic is a great place to do business – the area is full of talented entrepreneurs with global ambition from within and beyond the region.

Riga is currently booming with young people with outstanding ideas, good infrastructure and life quality, one of the fastest internet speeds in the world and easy access to any capital in Europe.

The region has been a historic crosspoint between East and West, with the tech industry now reinvigorating this tradition in the digital age.

Latvia’s ecosystem provides an unparalleled mix of reasonable startup costs, access to international entrepreneurial talent and capital, startup friendly regulation and excellent geographical connections. TechChill is the best way of getting a fast-track introduction to the Baltics!

HISTORY

TechChill is Riga’s main tech startup community event with Baltic outreach and a global outlook.

In a span of just 5 years, TechChill has grown from a small grassroots movement of a few hundred like-minded tech enthusiasts to a two-day community event of over a thousand annual attendees, including VC’s, investors, mentors and the region’s most up-and-coming startups.

TechChill is the brain-child of Latvian startup community building pioneers TechHub Riga, who organised Latvia’s first startup event back in 2012, in partnership with TechCrunch – TechCrunch Baltics.

After the event evolved into what we now know as TechChill, it still maintained its signature elements of a comfortable size and an informal and relaxed atmosphere, which were the foundation of TechCrunch Baltic’s success.
