The value we want to bring to the Baltic startup ecosystem goes beyond the annual meeting place for two days in February at TechChill (although, we do look forward to that as well). During the seven years of existence, we have gathered an extensive network of startup community players, startups, investors and corporations – a resource we can use to raise awareness of the Baltic startup success stories and help local startups build international connections.
The tech and startup event schedule in May is as busy as it gets so make sure to drop us a message and meet over a cup of coffee in Berlin, Vilnius, Minsk, Tallinn, Amsterdam, Helsinki, Sofia or even Riga if you’re lucky enough to catch us here during the handful of days we’re not abroad this month. And for the more adventurous ones- we are always up for a karaoke night!
CUBE Tech Fair | May 15–16 | Berlin, Germany
CUBE Tech Fair offers a targeted matchmaking between startups & corporates- shifting focus of the event from stage to the actual business taking place during the event.
As a part of the event we are organising 4 Roundtable discussions tackling the topics of “Corporate Innovation in the Baltics” and “Baltic startup investment landscape”. With these discussions we offer first-hand insights for corporations & investors interested in the Baltics. To share your experience or learn more about the potential and tech talent of the region, reach out to Ieva.
Startup Fair | May 16–17 | Vilnius, Lithuania
Startup Fair is a conference bringing together startups, investors and everyone curious for innovations. The participation is free of charge (yes, you did not misread) and program offers keynotes, discussion panels, B2B meetings and a pitch battle.
With Lithuania being so close to us (geographically & mentally), we intend to take the most out of the 4h bus rides to and from Vilnius and therefore invite all startups & friends to save a seat on the Startup bus. Needless to say, the ride is also for free.
To meet up at the Vilnius Tech park, drop a message to Kristine.
EMERGE | May 17–18 | Minsk, Belarus
The startup scene in Belarus has changed significantly during the past few years. The ecosystem in the country has been fortunate to be able to skip some development phases, partially modeling itself on more established startup hubs to develop quickly. EMERGE is the heart of the New East and the guide for those who haven’t been in touch with the region, yet.
If you are a community builder, mover & shaker, make sure to join us for “Startup & Tech Community Summit” on the morning of May 18, breakfast included. Find more detailed information and sign-up here.
In case of any questions or if you want to meet for a coffee, reach out to Ieva or Kristine.
Latitude59 | May 24–25 | Tallinn, Estonia
Latitude59 has traditionally been the place for doing face to face follow-ups for discussions that have started at TechChill. Taking into consideration the importance of following-up, we wouldn’t dare to miss this event, the highlight of (e-)Estonian startup scene.
You are welcome to use our friends discount “T3CHCH1LL” to claim a Guest ticket for €159 instead of €199 and a Startup ticket for €99 instead of €159.
Drop Anna a message to have a chat and find ways how to chill with TechChill.
The Next Web Conference | May 24–25 | Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Since 2006, TNW Conference has been driving the evolution of technology events into what they are today. This year we are joining 15 000 attendees from all across the world.
Psst! Keep your eyes open for the good-old TechChill Breakfast side event to get the latest update on the Latvian and Baltic startup ecosystem.
