MORE ABOUT PROGRAM

The first season of the pre-acceleration program Innovation Academy proved that there are many ambitious, technological ideas with global potential in Latvia. We also learned that systematic, proactive and practical work in teams on the development of these ideas allows engaged participants to achieve clearly measurable progress and helps to create an early, investment-ready flow of projects, thus promoting the ecosystem basis of Latvian start-ups. On October 20th, 2022, the second Innovation Academy program will begin.
