Our Vision

Latvia in 2020 is recognized as the perfect launchpad for startups to go global.


Latvia's ecosystem provides an unparalelled mix of reasonable startup costs, access to international entrepreneurial talent and capital, startup friendly regulation and excellent geographical connections.


Our Manifesto

We, stakeholders of the Latvian startup community - startups, startup founders and employees, coworking spaces, incubators, accelerators and other ecosystem service providers, individual and corporate supporters, individual and institutional investors and other players - have come to a conclusion that the only credible way for Latvian economy to move forward and to be competitive in the future is to embrace the startup movement and jointly build the economy of tomorrow. We believe that the only way startup community can develop and thrive is from bottom up - therefore we have agreed to self organize, to unite around a set of common values and to speak with one voice. For this purpose we have founded Latvian Startup Association with the following objectives:
