Past event: e-estonia digital discussion: what’s trending in fintech?

Our friends at e-Estonia are hosting leading experts from the Estonian government and IT industry at an online event series called Digital Discussions that concentrates on different topics in digitalisation. On September 16 you are invited to participate in the next Digital Discussion that has fintech as the focal point.

Estonian ​financial solutions are known for being highly innovative, user-friendly, and reliable. That’s because Estonia as a whole, as well as its financial technology sector, in particular, have had close to thirty years to build a high-level financial system from scratch, fuelled by a unique entrepreneurial and tech-savvy environment that has, among other things, given rise to more unicorn startups per capita than any other country in the world. Today, Estonia’s ever-evolving fintech sector is poised to help set the trend for Europe and beyond.

Let’s meet the trendsetters participating in the next e-Estonia Digital Discussion on fintech:
