The much-anticipated codefest comes to Riga


Startup world superstars, Junction and Slush 2019, arrive in Riga on September 13 to host Tech Race Europe, the much-awaited mini-hackathon aiming to bring like-minded people together and lower the barrier of hackathons.

Whether a beginner or an experienced techie, you’re free to compete in the event and take your chance at winning its stupendous prize – direct access for the Tech Race Final Week in Helsinki.

The prize includes full passes to Junction 2019 and Slush 2019 plus a chance to participate in a number of company excursions, recruiting events and exclusive gatherings. In addition to that, the winning team gets their flights and accommodation (November 14-23) covered!

To make the event accessible to everyone there will be a large pool of assignments to choose from which are especially designed to suit every skill level. Of course, there’s a catch – the more difficult the challenge the more points participants get for completing it. You’ll be able to participate alone or in a team of up to three people.

We at TechChill are excited to organize the event here in Riga and look forward to giving you this amazing opportunity! The hackathon starts at 5 PM on September 13 and takes place in Kalpaka bulvāris 4, Riga (UL and Microsoft Innovation Centre).

Event schedule:
5:00 PM Doors open
5:10 PM Opening Speeches & Instructions
5:30 PM Hacking begins
7.30 PM Winners announced
8:00 PM Mingle, Food & Drinks
10:00 PM Event ends

If you think you’re ready to hack that thon then sign up here.
