Why you should apply?
"The program and its mentors have genuinely taught us what it means to develop an idea and create a company out of it. I would say the most fascinating revelations were how you must create multiple plans, pivot when difficulty arises and how the timeline for the plans shifts before your eyes."
- Emīls Egle, CEO at Saubram
"Although ESI provides many lectures and workshops, it's super important to mention that the team members behind this program are like a family! This whole experience would not be the same without the Program Director and Manager. They are like two moms who always check in with you, support you and join you in your adventures. Trust us - this is not your average incubator!"
- Sāra Zdanovska,
CEO at YourLibet
"The ESI programme has allowed us to develop the idea not only on a theoretical business level but also provided financial support for developing product samples and even for market testing. We definitely recommend it to everyone who has the self-motivation to work every day to make an idea into reality"
- Elvija Vanaga,
CEO at Fat Cat Leaves
"ESI incubator provided an opportunity to meet world-class mentors and participate in interactive workshops allowing us to future develop our solution."
