This weekend I was invited to Latvia to facilitate Startup Weekend Riga. And what an incredibly spectacular weekend it was!
The FANTASTIC venue.
This guy kicked it all off.
And made everybody play Half-Baked to break the ice.
And then we pitched our ideas.
And then we went on to vote on the pitches and the winners went on to form teams and then they went on to WORK WORK WORK!
On the Saturday the coaches arrived to help us out.
And on Sunday, the final day, it was time for the teams to present what they had been working on and what they had learned during the weekend in front of a full house and a competent jury.
And the winner is… “House Heroes” – an app to gamify chores for parents and kids.
If you’re ever in Riga, be sure to check out the incredibly beautiful city. An incredible amount of the architecture is in the “Art Nouveau” style – one of my absolute favorite styles! Check out my Instagram for more architectural pictures of Riga.
