58 participants took part in the “Green HExagon” bootcamp in Riga, Latvia

The best participants of the “Green HExagon” online pre-incubation programme took part in a 3-day bootcamp in Riga, Latvia, from 9 to 12 of April. This year 58 participants from four countries – Latvia, Estonia, Austria and the Czech Republic – took part in the camp.

“This year the University of Latvia had the honour to organise and host the “Green HExagon” partners and participants in Riga for a face-to-face training on marketing. The bootcamp was attended by the best participants of the programme who are working on the development of their business ideas. It was a real pleasure to meet the participants in person and to introduce them to the University of Latvia and the country,” said Liene Bērziņa, Head of the Business Incubator of the University of Latvia.

During the bootcamp, students worked two days in marketing-themed workshops together with lecturer, entrepreneur and PhD candidate Imants Krēziņš. They completed a mentoring session with mentors from the university incubator “UniLab” and the Latvian Business Angels Network “LatBAN”. The camp participants also attended a lecture on starting a business and approaching investors, given by Voldemārs Bēdiķis. The event also included various social activities and excursions.

Project partners from the University of Latvia (LU Business Incubator), University of Tartu, Czech University of Life Sciences in Prague (Point One Business Incubator) and Vienna Noistadt University of Applied Sciences (Startup Centre) visited the Institute of Solid State Physics of the University of Latvia, participated in various discussions and explored various opportunity’s in the University of Latvia.

The “Green HExagon” pre-incubation programme will conclude with a Demo Day on 12 of June, where teams will compete for a 5000 EUR grant for prototyping, consulting and mentoring.

“Green HExagon” is a four-month online programme in English that supports the development of ideas that tackle a range of sustainability challenges, from climate and environment to education and inequality.
