    The Experience

    Garage48 events are all about experience, to give you opportunity to meet new people, exchange ideas, build together, learn new stuff. It is a great place to test your idea, by seeing if you can pitch it good enough to get a team and then build a prototype to test it with potential users. Its an equally great place to gain experience, learn new technologies by doing and of course have some fun! 

    A bunch of notable gaming companies are operating from Riga, including InnowateAmber Games and more. Some Riga-based startups attempt to gamify the uttermost serious services to make them user-friendly; for example, BranchTrack is turning customer engagement training into a virtual role-play.
