According to the website, the association was “launched in 2019 when VEF district technology companies joined forces with real estate developers and Riga municipality-owned culture venue VEF Kulturas Pils,” with the aim to redevelop the VEF district as “a pilot territory for smart city solutions where corporations, startups, and the public sector prototype and test their latest solutions in public space.”

The Sorainen team included of Partner Ieva Andersone, Senior Associate Andris Taurins, Associates Linda Reneslace and Julija Terjuhana, and Legal Assistant Gunvaldis Leitens.
