Growing Entrepreneurially Minded Students. That’s How We Rule...

Inspiring entrepreneurial stories? Sharing ideas? Being inspired to start a company? 

Meeting new people? Getting professional business advice? Meeting successful entrepreneurs for lunch? Developing entrepreneurial skills? This and much more is what Riga Business School students get from Startup Lab – a platform for growing entrepreneurially minded students. 
So far Startup Lab classes have covered prototyping, the strategic learning process, blue ocean strategy, assessment of business ideas (investors’ perspectives) and creative thinking tools. Mentoring sessions have been led by top business professionals from Swedbank, Outdoor Latvia, Latvian Investment and Development Agency and other companies / organizations. 
Mentoring sessions have been supplemented by breathtaking guest lectures. For instance, Rolands Feldmanis (Editor in Chief Forbes Latvia and Finance Editor at Forbes Estonia) shared the success stories of people featured in Forbes. Miķelis Caunītis talked about his experience starting up “Enegrolukss” and working on other business projects. Lecture with Glen Grant (former British military person, current business consultant) and his “lessons learned” were super as well.
The start of the Startup Lab program has been intense and dynamic, which we aim to continue!
