February 17 – 21, 2019

Bootcamp in Riga, Latvia, February 17th - 21st.

We are running a 3-days intensive program for startups dedicated to networking, pitching, and fundraising. It will end up with the TechChill conference. Our co-hosts in Riga are Latvian hardware and IoT accelerator BuildIt and Accenture Latvia.


Monday, February 17th

Venue: BuildIt accelerator

  • 10.00 – 11.00 Meet and greet. Morning coffee.
  • 11.00 – 18.00 Workshop by Walid O. El Cheikh.
Briefly about the workshop: This is a pitching workshop, it is as dynamic as a HIIT training but perhaps a bigger mental sweat. We will learn the techniques on how to maximize those pitches in a safe and fun environment. The more you try, the better your pitching skills become, so come with a mindset that this session is about learning.
