Premier Student Business Conference & 10 000€ competition “ICEBREAKERS’18” by University of Latvia Student Business incubator


What you know about business is just a tip of the ICEBERG - the conference celebrates the youth involvement in the entrepreneurship by gathering all the brightest minds from near and far to hold a one-day event to learn about innovative Business possibilities in various fields. We invite the courageous business enthusiasts to take action and participate in the 10 000€ grant competition.

The event is taking place on October 5 at the PeopleWork Riga office, sharing inspirational experience stories and inviting more than 200 energetic students, relentless startups, and business enthusiasts.

This October, the event will host three different stages, each with a particular focus, but all having one thing in common — to create a laboratory for new ideas and possibilities. 

Student Business incubator believes the philosophy of “ICEBREAKERS'18” - to encourage young people to explore the unknown diversity of business opportunities in various fields and to encourage students to raise their ambitions and to look beyond the borders of Latvia in order to promote the world experience and knowledge.

The Minister for Economics of the Republic of Latvia Arvils Aseradens will open the stage, offering their predictions on the future of the Latvian startup ecosystem and share the possibilities of the youth involvement.

The conference will be visited by international companies that will share their success stories and offer new career opportunities. An overview of support possibilities for starting a successful business in Europe will be covered. The main topics of the conference concern the diversity of business opportunities in different areas.

Participants will be also invited to participate in workshops organized by Microsoft Latvia, Virtual Reality Studio, LearnIT, and Tilde.

The conference will end with a Student Grant competition where students will be given the opportunity to pitch their business ideas and compete for the main prize - 10 000 €. 
For students this means several opportunities for formal and informal networking to meet new partners, employees, evaluate promising employers while competing to win 10 000 € for further development of their businesses.
