In the wake of rapid digitalization that many companies are undertaking today, organizational structures have undergone significant changes. Investing in talent development is thus a critical element to ensure sustainable growth and to foster innovation.

We’re gathering experts from both the public and private sectors to help us better understand the future of education and what has been done so far to nurture a competitive and ambitious environment.

We’ll be joined by Aldis Greitans, Assistant Professor at Riga Business School; Krists Avots, Director of Digital Transformation, Head of Strategy at Tet.lv; Girts Berzins, Head of Digital Innovation and Strategy at Swedbank Latvia; Marija Ručevska, Co-founder at Helve & TechChill & more to come.

We will analyze the existing options for higher & alternative education in the region, and identify what we are missing, and which formats we could use to foster more rapid development of innovation-driven technologies, ensuring our export numbers are growing. Furthermore, for attracting and retaining talent in the region, it is crucial we build a culture where global mindset, ambition and agile working environment is the key.

As you are one of the driving forces behind the education system and its development in Latvia, we warmly invite you to join us for the Swedbank Seedtalks event.
