About The Speaker
Since 2013 Egita has worked with more than 10 startup accelerator batches and she knows the process from A to Z. She has run 2 batches as Managing Director and 7 in other roles at Startup Wise Guys, but her love and hate relationship with startups started way before in Seattle when working for Techstars. Over the years Egita has moved from managing batches in Startup Wise Guys to scouting startups, partnerships and running operations. Currently she works on external partnership projects for Startup Wise Guys. Egita also plays part in Latvian startup ecosystem, formerly designing EU support projects at the Ministry of Economics, running TechHub Riga and organising TechChill.
