SINCE 2012

TALLINN, EST: MAY 21-23, 2025

2 days of startup showcases at Latitude59 2024 – Pitching Stage powered by Google

Although Google has long since grown out of the tiny garage that housed the company’s first office, the startup attitude and energy is in their DNA. The Vilnius-based Google team advises Baltic startups every day and helps them develop growth strategies – to discover new markets, search for the best working business models, use the most advanced marketing solutions and expand worldwide. In 2024, we’re proud to see Google’s team also powering the Latitude59’s pitching stage where accelerators, incubators and global startup programs will line up their best and most promising startups, across May 23 and 24! Take a seat and dive in!
