“The Startup School of Schools programme is designed to help startups tackle fundamental business issues – finding a market, building a team, financial planning, legal issues for startups and attracting attention. The topics will be covered in six workshops, which will provide an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the topics through expert examples and practical advice. Each session will be led by 1-2 experienced professionals from international investment funds such as Inventure, the fastest growing start-ups and industry leaders, as well as Growth Tribe.
The programme is open until 11 October to any young entrepreneur or anyone interested in gaining practical knowledge in building and managing a sustainable business. The lectures will also help you develop the skills to prepare your business projects for funding from private investors or other financial sources. “Startup School of Schools will also be relevant for those interested in finding new contacts, attracting potential team members or finding the experts they need to develop their idea.
Participants who attend the entire 6-week cycle of classes will receive a certificate of completion from the Latvian Investment and Development Agency and TechHub Riga.
