What is Angel Camp

Angel Camp is an annual EstBAN event for business angels, partners, VCs and other startup ecosystem players to learn, discuss, socialize, network and get to know each other. Consider this to be joint summer days of EstBAN, LatBAN, LitBAN, FiBAN and other BAN members, friends and guests who are more than welcome to network and gain new knowledge.

This year Angel Camp takes place in lovely and lively Riga – let’s meet the most relevant people, local community, and booming startup scene. The event is organized by EstBAN and co-hosted by LitBAN, LatBAN and our good friends from HTTPool.

*The event follows strictly all health and safety measures set by The Health Boards of Republic of Estonia and Latvia. All participating members need to provide a COVID19 vaccination certificate or a proof of a negative COVID19 test result. (Keeping up to date with the regulations)
