  • This year on March 10-12 together with the Latvian Startup association, Startin.LV we are organizing a free for all Sharing Economy hackathon in Riga.

    Sharing Economy has been developing in the Baltics for the last 4 years and 2017 is looking very promising in terms of new legal regulations and overall growth. The region is attracting world-class businesses and becoming the birthplace of such. In 2015 based on the data of PwC and European Commission the industry generated a €28 billion turnover in Europe alone and a turnover of €570 billion is expected by 2025. By approaching talented minds in the region, «Startup Slalom+Garage48. Sharing Economy» will act as a mean to boost the movement increasing the momentum for the overall industry development and recognition.

    Everyone interested in building their very own sharing economy startup is welcome to join the event by filling out the application by following the registration link. 

    The deadline for the applications is March 3! If you are a programmer, a designer, a project manager or a marketing specialist join now as the places are limited.

    Join the Facebook event for all the up-to-date news!

    NB! Schedule is tentative, changes are possible and likely to happen.
