STRATEGIC GLOBAL PARTNERS & NETWORKS

To offer wider range of opportunities to Latvia-based startups, Magnetic Latvia Startup has gone on a mission to secure strategic partnerships with the most known startup ecosystems and networks around the globe.
In early 2018, we have launched a partnership with San Francisco’s WE WORK, we have signed a government-to-government Memorandum of Understanding with Gyeonggi province (South Korea) which boasts a massive growth of their startup ecosystem, and we have several other partnerships in the making. Stay tuned!
