What is Startup Estonia?
Startup Estonia is a governmental initiative aimed to supercharge the Estonian startup ecosystem in order to be the birthplace of many more startup success stories to come. For that, we are working on making Estonia one of the world's best places for startups, partnering with and uniting the best of startups, incubators, accelerators, private and public sector.
What exactly does Startup Estonia do?Today, Startup Estonia divides its activities into 4 categories:
- Strengthening the Estonian startup ecosystem – uniting and building the community through different events and activities, creating and executing unified marketing and branding strategies, assisting regional development and science-based decision making;
- Co-organizing impactful startup events with the community, advocating diversity in age, gender, culture and backgrounds;
- Working on educating the local investors and attracting foreign investors to Estonia, helping available resources and vital know-how to reach startups and the community;
- Working on eliminating regulative issues and barriers that are complicating the process of operating a startup, investing or raising funding in Estonia, and implementing startup friendly regulations such as the Startup Visa.
