The most important technology and start-up conference in the Baltics, Latitude59, taking place in Tallinn Creative Hub on 19-20 May, is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. In total, the conference is expected to attract more than 2,500 attendees, including over 300 investors, over 700 start-ups and a number of key industry influencers. The main topics of the conference are diversity, sustainability, social impact, the application of science in business and collaboration with large companies.
According to Tallinn Deputy Mayor Joosep Vimm, the city is showcasing its key objectives for the coming years: reducing its carbon footprint, ensuring biodiversity and sustainable governance. “Latitude59 brings together start-ups as well as long-standing companies with the public sector. These very different organisations need to work together even more in an increasingly digital world, and in urban governance, we are also testing new approaches and solutions in partnership with businesses. Digital technologies are helping the public sector to do its job better and provide better services to the public while saving natural resources,” said Vimm.
