About the Organization: TechHub Riga is the first startup co-working space in Riga, Latvia and the center of startup community in Latvia. The coworking space for startups hosts more than 45 members, and many events including the largest monthly meetups in Latvia that bring together up to 100 people interested in technology and entrepreneurship. TechHub Riga is managed by 2 staff members and 6 board members – experienced entrepreneurs.
Work Description: The intern can choose to help out at the TechHub Riga co-working space management at the position of an Events Manager Assistant, where he/she will have to help oversee the organization and smooth running of all workshops, meet-ups and other pop-up events taking place within TechHub Riga co-working space. This will include communicating with potential mentors and speakers for the events, communicating with the startups at the premises, launching events on our online social media platforms, promoting them and overseeing their execution. The intern can also choose to participate in any of the startups and organizations within TechHub Riga premises. The role there would then depend on the necessity of the startup and would be matched based on the student’s application.
"Working for early-stage startups like Asya and TechHub was both challenging and rewarding. From day one, they gave me tasks crucial to the company’s success or failure. I was able to experience an entire range of business activities unique to startups. My work this summer helped me focus my academic and professional plans. Additionally, through this internship I visited dozens of museums, kayaked across the river Daugava, and visited UNESCO world heritage sites — and that’s just in Riga! I also managed to travel to four countries in just eight weeks."
