Meet the teams of EstLat-Accelerate batch #3
The last batch of startups of EstLat-Accelerate has been working on their ideas for the last few months. There have been workshops in Tartu and Riga, a lot of mentoring and a lot of development!
The EstLat-Accelerate programme started with a mentoring academy in Tartu on the 8th of November. Each team got a personal mentor who will help the team leader to focus on the most important things throughout the pre-accelerator programme. There were two more workshop days - on 30th of November in Riga and on 12th of December in Tartu.
All team leaders got to visit Riga Digital Freedom Festival and Slush! They did a really good job by taking part in the workshops, networking and getting new ideas to develop their businesses!

About the EstLat-Accelerate project
EstLat-Accelerate is a pre-accelerator programme to facilitate the development of the Latvian and Estonian startup environment, which was launched under the auspices of the European Regional Development Fund’s programme Interreg Estonia–Latvia 2014–2020. The programme is implemented in accordance with the cohesion policy’s goal of promoting European territorial cooperation. The programme offers the opportunity to develop cooperation between Estonia and Latvia, which began with the fulfillment of the Estonia-Latvia-Russia INTERREG IIIA Priority within the Baltic Sea Region INTERREG III B neighborly relations programme in 2004 and the Estonia–Latvia programme from 2007–2013.
The EstLat-Accelerate project is part of the European Regional Development Fund programme Interreg Estonia–Latvia. The project’s partnership cities are Riga and Tartu. They are both represented by five partners, i.e. the founders of the local startup community – the Latvian Startup Association Startin.lv, TechHub Riga, Tartu University, the Garage48 foundation and the Baltic Innovation Agency.
The programme is implemented under the European territorial cooperation goal of the cohesion policy and it supports cross-border cooperation. The programme is co-funded by European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), the Republic of Estonia and the Republic of Latvia.
