It was a great chance to meet people who think alike, and has a passion for entrepreneurship and challenging problems, that they have faced in their lives,” tells Emils Darzins, who is now part of the team as the Sales Manager at TechChill.   Laila Ratmane will also be joining TechChill 2019 as a Volunteer Lead, after being part of the volunteer experience for two years in a row. “Kickass speakers, love of innovation in the air and a chance to blend in with all those inspiring people – you just can’t go wrong by choosing to volunteer. Everyone from everywhere will be there and you have a chance to be a significant part of it. It’s up to you!”   See what’s planned and apply here until January 13.   “As the event grows, a lot of has changed, but one remains the same – our team of volunteers who always does such an amazing job and without whom we wouldn’t see the TechChill as it is. The event itself brings together like-minded people to find new and great opportunities and we are happy to share them with our volunteers who always have been a huge support to our core team,” says Kristine Kornilova, the CEO of the TechChill.   TechChill allows to network and finds new connections not only for startups and investors but also for volunteers.
