Awesome news! On October 22nd, ZoomCharts received the “Rising Star” title and was named as one of Latvia's best new exporting brands.
“Rising Stars” is an annual start-up competition that identifies the most promising brands among Latvian companies. Alongside the newbies, 25 best big exporting brands of Latvia received “The Red Jacket” title.
Both contests are organized by Latvian exporters' movement The Red Jackets, an organization that unites the best exporting brands of Latvia.
All the winners were presented with a special red vest or a jacket, because once Latvia had already drawn attention with one. We all remember the legendary photo of then president of Latvia Vaira Vīķe–Freiberga in a bright red jacket standing out among her foreign colleagues dressed in grey.
The red vests and jackets are designed by Latvian fashion designer Agnese Narņicka who has designed them as red raincoats, suitable for hard working entrepreneurs that come from a country of woods and swamps.
Our CEO Janis Volbergs received a red vest with a possibility to attach sleeves very soon. We're proud to be among 10 most promising new exporters and are determined to continue our mission!
We're also happy about other “Risings Star” winners: Amoralle, Angel Glass Design, Brum Brum Bikes, Ērenpreiss Original, Gigi Bloks, Giraffe360, Infogram, Milzu!, and Vizulo. Congratulations, guys!
