The video above is for an app that is built by one of the founding members of TechHub Riga. It was shot in the TechHub Riga location, before it opened. Starring in it, two guys who each have their own start-up.

TechHub Riga is also the location for Open Coffee Club Riga. Communities like this are great for start-ups and the fact that TechHub London has connected with the startup community at the other end of the European Union is very promising. We need more of this multi-country cooperation, and I hope this challenge will bring great concepts for Europe.

It is interesting how the Network of tech is naturally so collaborative- and already operating outside of boundaries of traditionally economies. I wonder if there is an opportunities for the Digital world to create new agreed 'standards' that will naturally adopted by all EU startups. A first case of "crowdsourced" legislation :)

So true about how tech networks are naturally collaborative – it's going to be interesting to see how we might leverage that in the upcoming Concepting phase.

I love the idea of crowd sourced legislation Francesca! I recently read an article about he the Internet generation, ie. us, identifies themselves more as citizens of the world than of their own country. They explore the idea of having the option of a "global" citizenship, not just your countries. I honk they're onto something there. Think of all the wars it'd end & economic barriers it'd remove, to have us all be a part of a one world nation. :)

Here's the link to the article : http://thenextweb.com/insider/2012/03/11/im-a-citizen-of-the-internet-where-do-i-get-my-passport/?awesm=tnw.to_1DcSk&utm_campaign=social%20media&utm_medium=Spreadus&utm_source=Twitter&utm_content=I'm%20a%20citizen%20of%20the%20Internet,%20where%20do%20I%20get%20my%20passport?

*honk = think. I'm sorry my iPad's spell check has a mind of it's own.
