BC, Riga, 12.03.2019.Print version
The Investment and Development Agency of Latvia (LIAA) will organise the second international Magnetic Latvia Technology conference Deep Tech Atelier in Riga from April 12th-13th. The event will include an extensive practical and educational programme, gathering together science-based startups, research organisations, entrepreneurs, industry and government institution representatives, and technology fans in one place, informed LIAA representative.

The conference will introduce new models of cooperation and create new deep-tech startup teams. The winners of startup competition will be determined, and everyone will have the opportunity to acquire the practical knowledge and skills needed for business development and the commercialisation of science.

 

“The Deep Tech Atelier conference is a special event where entrepreneurship meets science. We have capable scientists, powerful entrepreneurs, and access to a wide array of financial support both from European funds, as well as private investors. This is why we can already be proud that precisely in Latvia such strong, science-based startups are created such as Naco Technologies, which was acquired by German auto giant Shaeffler, or Eventech, which provided technological support for the “Luna 27” space mission Moon landing,” says LIAA Director Andris Ozols.

 

During the Deep Tech Atelier technology conference, the thirteenth Commercialization Reactor Ignition Event will also be held. It will provide all entrepreneurs the opportunity to create their own science-based technology company in cooperation with up to 20 pre-selected technology authors.

 

“Our goal is to bring together entrepreneurs and the creators of scientific innovations, creating new high-tech companies that introduce significant innovations to various sectors. This is very important and benefits everyone: scientists, entrepreneurs, industries, investors and also the state. Support and mentoring for the creation of new businesses is provided by the Commercialization Reactor. Existing businesses can also join our acceleration programme and receive financing from the Commercialization Reactor Fund. With the help of our team more than 90 companies have already been created in Latvia. They have succeeded in attracting more than seven million euros in risk capital and private investment. These achievements prove that Riga must be taken into account as a European high-tech startup creation centre,” tells Commercialization Reactor Founder and Visionary Nikolajs Adamovics.

 

Confirmed conference attendees include well-known industry businesses, universities and accelerators. Conference participation is free of cost for registered attendees. Detailed information about the conference and programme is available here: http://deeptechatelier.liaa.gov.lv
