Invitation to join 'StartUp Day' flashmob

Business startup enthusiasts are inviting like-minded entrepreneurs to rally in Dome Square September 12 to create Latvia's first ever 'Startup Day'. 

The invitation is being issued by organizers of the Digital Freedom Festival (DFF), about which LSM has written extensively in the past.

This year's DFF takes place November 27-28 in Riga, but ahead of that the startup gathering is intended to be a flashmob style event to express support for startup infrastructure in Latvia and a demonstration of the strength of interest in the world of startups.

Though flashmobs are frequently rebellious counter-cultural affairs, this one promises to be more genteel, featuring as it does Economics Minister Arvils Aseradens and Juris Gulbis, one of the highest-paid executives in the country at majority state-owned Lattelecom.

Among the attendees will be DFF founder Dagnija Lejina, who appeared on our Minutes from Latvia podcast last year.
