Closest to a startup without actually being one
What started as a birthday celebration for the local co-working space TechHub Riga in 2012, has grown to be the very cornerstone of the Baltic tech scene. TechChill Foundation is a non-profit offering the network, skills and know-how to boost success of the Baltic founders.
We strive for creating meaningful connections between potential partners – be it startups, investors, customers or employees.
For tech-heads, by tech-heads
Every year over 2000 people gather in Riga, Latvia for the TechChill conference. And the legendary afterparties. And the Finnish sauna parked outside the venue. And so much more.
The event is run entirely by the local techies and volunteers giving the attendees the essence of what the Baltic startup scene is like.
Act. Learn. Implement. Grow.
After a decade of learning tricks of the trade in the Baltics, we chose Milan as our first global TechChill conference destination to bring the spotlight over the often underestimated Italian ecosystem. And trust when we say the place is hot – in 2022 Milan was ranked 3rd in Europe in total investments, with an amazing 90% increase from the year before.
If you can’t beat them, join them
From its early days TechChill has been the launch pad for students and the tech-curious, offering them not only a glimpse of the ecosystem, but a chance to dive in head first. To say that they have later stuck around would be an understatement. Many have since founded (or happily buried) their own startups or have joined renowned funds and tech companies. #techchillfamily
The driving force behind TechChill is a handful of people with an endless passion for startups. Or is it the coffee that’s never-ending?
