I get sad sometimes that we don’t discuss much of what is moving in Latvia.
Greg Mathers, Juris Ulmanis, James Bowen (in Ottawa) and I at RTU Riga Business School have been in the process of creating a business accelerator. The name is FastTrack. We are currently consolidating our operating fund sources and accepting investors.
Along the way to our little offering to Latvian entrepreneurship, we have learned a fair amount about the LV start-up world - some positive, some not so. One of the most positive is the opening of TechHub Riga in February. This was largely driven by Andris Berziņš, Toby Moore, Rihards Gailums and a few others. TechHub is a coworking space and is currently home to some really cool IT start-ups. They also host IT pitch nights and other meetups.
Anybody else have some positive piemers?
