ArcticStartup is going on a road trip next week! Our end destination is the TechChill Baltics conference in Riga, but first on Monday the 11th at 17:30 we’ll be at Garage48 in Tallinn to talk about Startup Media tips. We’re hoping we can share some good information, and we’re really excited about meeting the scene in both Tallinn and Riga.

So again, if you’re in Tallinn on Monday evening, stop by and say hello. And hopefully we’ll be meeting a lot of hot startups to cover at TechChill Baltics!
