Previous Fifty Founder Battle winners at TechChill include well known and successful Baltic startups such as, TrackDuck, Edurio, Nordigen, Sprayprinter and last year’s winner Precision Navigation Systems.

“Winning Fifty Founder Battle reinforced us a lot in credibility, awareness, and funding areas. We got appreciated by the startup community leaders, drastically increased our media coverage, attracted a lot of attention from investors. It’s not that easy to find investors from Eastern Europe, unless you have stable revenue streams. Hence the prize helped us a lot to bootstrap our business further,” shares last year’s winner Simon Litvinov, CEO and co-founder of Precision Navigation Systems.

TechChill has grown to become one of the leading tech, startup and entrepreneurship inspiration events in the region. TechChill 2020 agenda will focus on technologies that will impact our lives in the upcoming five years: blockchain, 5G, greentech and its sustainable business models. For 2 days on February 20-21, 2020, the event in Riga will host 2000 international attendees, including 100 speakers, 400 startups and 70 media representatives.
