"Creating e-solutions to grow economies: The Estonian Experience"
by the President of the Republic of Estonia Kersti Kaljulaid
Estonia today ranks third in Europe regarding the number of startups per capita, hosts one of the world’s fastest broadband, has attracted over 370 million euro in startup investments and recently launched its e-residency scheme!
It is the birthplace of Skype, Taxify, TransferWise and creator of “Data Embassy” the world’s first data embassy in Luxembourg (a complete backup of the country’s data in the event of a cyber-attack). Estonia realized early on that as a smaller country in order to boost development they had to do things differently, they had to go digital. From developing strong e-governance transcending all sectors to creating an encouraging environment for startup growth, innovation became the cornerstone of the economy.
In this unique event hosted at Orange Grove, we have the honour to receive Her Excellency Mrs Kersti Kaljulaid President of the Republic of Estonia, who will present how Estonia built its competitive advantage by making its society digital and fostering a growth economy. The country acknowledged that while industrial area jobs were vanishing quickly, digitalization and automation have the potential to rebuild a major growth path, within a resilient job market, and this is where the future of work is heading.
Join us on Thursday 17th of May at 16:30, for this unique opportunity to listen to President Kersti Kaljulaid present the digitization experience of Estonia’s economy and governancediscuss startups and the future of work, and participate in Q&As!
Our follow-up speaker Mr Priit Salumaa, Head of Business development at Mooncascade, a leading Estonian software and product development company founded by four software engineers, including two former Skype engineers, will join the conversation with his experience from the Estonian startup ecosystem.
The event is OPEN and FREE but REGISTRATION is necessary via this link:
