Among them was a healthy contingent from Latvia led by the Startup Wise Guys who took the hours before the start of Latitude 59 as a chance to hone their pitching techniques to potential investors:
Also leading the Latvian charge is peer-to-peer lender Twino which was running a special start-up bus to help the businesses of the future get from Riga to Tallinn:
Aboard the fun bus was former Economy Minister Daniels Pavluts, now something of an advocate for start-ups and progressive business in Latvia:
According to Mareks Matisons, who appears to have taken the precaution of trademarking his own name ahead of the trip - maybe you can buy the rights to it? - the Latvians are definitely ready for two days of pitch, catch and networking:
This was longest time ever spent on the road to Tallinn. But the ride was fun. #latitude59 will be a blast (: Latvians ?? are ready!— Mareks Matisons™ (@marruciic) May 30, 2016
You can follow all the action from Latitude 59 via this livestream (which works almost as well as a Latvian livestream).
Good luck to all pitchers - we hope you come back with a bus full of seed money!
