The delegation will include the leaders of Estonia’s burgeoning business and startup scene, including TransferWise CEO and cofounder Taavet Hinrikus.
The Nordic Business Forum is one of the most important business events in Europe and this year’s theme is ‘purpose, responsibility and leadership’. British business tycoon Richard Branson and Hollywood star Will Smith will both be there to share their thoughts on the subject.
Attendees from around Europe and the world will be able to easily find the stand for our cloud-based digital nation. Simply look out for the giant digital cloud inside the conference hall. Visitors there will be treated to a glass of delicious fresh organic rhubarb juice made by Põhjaka and learn about the opportunities provided by e-Estonia and the benefits of e-Residency.
Estonia’s success has been enabled by its digital revolution, but there will be a wide range of businesses within the delegation. Visitors should keep an eye out for any of the 960 Estonian representatives who’ll be wearing blue ‘enter e-Estonia’ badges. Every one of them has their own unique story to tell about how they are living and working in the first digital borderless nation.
Visitors will also get the chance to enter one of the most innovative houses ever designed. Koda by Estonia’s Kodasema is a future-proof movable concrete home.
The Koda home will also be the venue for Richard Branson to attend dinner prepared by Põhjaka and learn more about e-Residency and other opportunities and initiatives from the first borderless digital nation, such as Let’s Do It World — an Estonian organisation that is on track to mobilise 5% of the entire Earth’s population for a massive world clean up day in 2018.
