Garage48 will be back at SSE Riga

Garage48 returns to Riga! The most famous hackathon and startup event in the region takes place from October 18th to 20th at SSE Riga.


Garage48 was first in SSE Riga earlier this year and many great projects were born during the event. Campalyst-  a project which aims to turn your Facebook fans into customers - was developed by a team combining people from all the Baltic countries.Their idea was executed at Riga’s event and taken further at Startup Sauna, then got into Europe’s best known seed fund and mentoring program Seedcamp.

The non-profit project Bribespot, which aims to literally map corruption, got a great deal of  international media attention, e.g. from WSJand The New York Times.

The Mighty Fingersteam of hackers won the Most Fun Project award at Garage48 Riga (at that time their entry was called Tank Battle), and has gone trough Startup Sauna and Labaca Academy. They’ve  just announced an investment by Russia’s Number One  game developer and distributor Game-Insight.

We expect many talented people at Garage48 Riga - a lot of creative ideas, great on-site mentors,  a unique vibe, lots of energy and 100% satisfaction. 

So, here we go - registration is open! All the talented back-end, front-end and mobile developers, designers, team leaders, visionaries and marketers - grab your seats! Tickets go fast!

Garage48 is a weekend-long intensive development event for working out new web and mobile applications and for bringing new startups to life. Take a look at past events.

Teams, which are formed on spot,  aim to realize the ideas presented on Friday evening in 48 hours, and deliver a working service or prototype. By selecting applicants carefully and enforcing the “no powerpoint” rule, teams are able to reach this goal. Because of the actual results and the impact of the projects in local startup communities, Garage48 has been featured in international media many times.

The Garage48 event is organized by the Garage48 Foundation, SSE Riga and Open Coffee Club Riga
