The activities will last all day, and anyone interested will be able to learn more about the startup ecosystem and its current opportunities, as well as network with the industry's leading experts. The event is free and held in English.
According to the organizers, Startin.LV, supported by Riga City Council, the event is an annual gathering that brings together startup representatives, policy makers, influencers, investors, and other ecosystem participants to discuss the current challenges, gain a platform to ask uncomfortable but important questions, and meet like-minded people to talk about future growth priorities. “Startup Day” program will last from 09:00 to 18:00.
The CEO of Startin.LV, Olga Barreto Goncalves, said:
“Due to the pandemic, last year's Startup Day was very limited as an opportunity for everyone to come together, talk about accomplishments, analyze what hasn’t been working, and figure out the next steps of development. This year, we are returning to the Startup Day tradition in full force – as an important event where the entire community has a platform and an opportunity to find their voice.”
In the evening, all participants and guests are invited to the backyard of the startup Printify for the Startup BBQ networking event, which will begin at 18:00.
"The end of the evening will be spent in an entertaining and informal atmosphere, enjoying burgers from TechHub Riga and drinks provided by ecosystem friends Lokalise, Jeff App, and Techchill. Along with the zestful rhythms of music performed by DJ Kārlis Ķilkuts, there will be speeches by representatives of the ecosystem and Drunk Pitches, which has become our yearly tradition," organizers say.

It will also be streamed live on Facebook, though in that case you will have to organize your own drinks and BBQ, and pitch to yourself or members of your family.
