It takes many driving forces to make TechChill happen, but one thing remains true – we wouldn’t be able to pull it off without our impressive team of volunteers. Take a look at what our previous volunteers (and now Team Leads) have to share about their experience and apply yourself!
“At TechChill you can get great inspiration, contacts and future vision in the world-leading field – tech. As a student of the Academy of Culture, I know that tech is everywhere and you don’t have to be afraid of it, because there is a lot of information and support to incorporate your culture knowledge in tech,” – shares Anna Krasovska who is Event Team Lead in TechChill 2020. This will be Anna’s second TechChill as she volunteered last year. That’s right, volunteering now could lead to Team Lead position in TechChill 2021.
“You can expect so much from volunteering at TechChill, not just expanding your professional network, but also making new international friends. Attending the main event and getting a chance to talk with CEOs and entrepreneurs not only gives you an idea of how all companies work, but you also hear so many inspirational success stories,” – TechChill 2020 Cloakroom Team Lead Ahmed Ahmed lists all the perks you can expect from volunteer experience.
“A sure thing to expect is fun memories because the environment in the behind-the-scenes part is great, the team is awesome and highly supportive and the tasks given are a great way to learn from experience. Also, the event shows that there are great things happening in Latvia,” – emphasizes Anita Ramka, Info Team Lead.
“You have full access to go where you want to go. As a volunteer, it’s good to have the privilege to see everything there – main and side events. Meeting new people, but more importantly – people with ideas. Conversations become more interesting,” TechChill 2020 Venue Team Lead Daniels Veļičenko explains.
We could go on about how rewarding it is to commit your time to make an event like TechChill come to life, but let’s cut to the chase – TechChill at its core is a platform that makes connections happen. What would you like to achieve this year? Who would you like to meet? Consider your goals and interests. Volunteering could help you reach them.
