Last night we celebrated a very important milestone. After one year and four months of operation the community for tech entrepreneurs in London will soon expand to serve the tech community in Latvia with TechHub Riga.
Techhubbers celebrated in style by holding a special edition of Members Drinks in which TechHub CEO Elizabeth Varley made the big announcement on a map of intrigue signalling other possible locations. With raised champagne glasses and an atmosphere of excitement members and visitors alike welcomed the big news.
While Riga, Latvia may come as a surprise for TechHub's first international expansion it soon became obvious why the decision had been made. Andris Berzins, who is helping lead TechHub Riga, presented a strong team of co-founders and a great lineup of startup companies that are already committed to becoming a part of the new TechHub community.
"Riga already has a lot of very switched on entrepreneurs and developers. The opening of TechHub Riga should help the TechHub community develop further and opens up some great opportunities for collaborations with TechHub startups in London" says Drummond Gilbert from GoCarShare and fellow London TechHubber.
We've come far by beginning our global expansion in a relatively short amount of time but it's certainly only the beginning. There is so much left to do and this great community of entrepreneurs is rooting for us every step of the way. They deserve only the best.
