We are above and beyond excited to share that yesterday, September 8 during the first ever Latvian Startup Award ceremony, Swotzy was honoured with the Latvian Startup Newcomer of 2023 Award.
'''This award is a testament to our collective dedication and hard work, and it is only the beginning. I truly want to take my hat off to our pioneering first-round customers who share our thirst for growth. Your priceless feedback is our compass, pushing us ahead,'' says Lauris Rutkis, our CEO and Co-founder.

Swotzy won an award in one of a total eight categories. Seven winners were chosen by a jury formed by the Latvian Startup Association Startin.LV, while the eighth, the Community Choice, was chosen by public vote.
