Latvia to be represented in the EWC by Longenesis

During the Latvian national finals of the Entrepreneurship World Cup (EWC) five promising Latvian startups competed for the opportunity to get into the global finals in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, as well as for a prize pool of USD 1 million. According to the jury vote, the Latvian winner was Longenesis, a health technology startup from Riga that accelerates the pace of clinical trials in the pharmaceutical industry multiple times.

The winner of the Latvian finals received a special prize – a ticket to the international business conference WebSummit in Lisbon, Portugal, as well as participation in the Entrepreneurship World Cup Accelerator. Longenesis will continue its journey in the next round – on a global level, competing against winners from 200 other countries to be among the top 100 companies. To better prepare for the Entrepreneurship World Cup global finals, Longenesis will participate in a special online training which will include mentoring sessions with international mentors aimed at better understanding the start-up’s current stage of development and potential growth opportunities. The global finals will take place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in November this year and will bring together the top 25 companies.

“We are extremely delighted and excited about our win at the Latvian national finals of the Entrepreneurship World Cup! This is a special occasion for our entire team and our company’s growth journey! We are determined to do everything we can to make it to the top 100 and later top 25 of the best companies through the opportunity to pitch our business idea to the international jury and investors,” says Sergejs Jakimovs, co-founder of Longenesis.

The people’s choice award went to Uniscopia Group, which has developed the e-commerce platform Printscopia, offering its customers the possibility to buy various products created with 3D technology, as well as to order the creation of various 3D products themselves. 

Five companies – Longenesis, My3D.Cloud, Naco Technologies, OX Drive, and Uniscopia Group – competed in the Latvian national finals of the Entrepreneurship World Cup. All the participants have reaped benefits from this competition – all five finalists will have the opportunity to receive Franklin Covey business coaching and mentoring to achieve excellence.
