Past event: Estonian Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai

If you are ready to build the next billion-dollar company with us at the Estonian Unicorn Factory you are welcome to visit the Estonian Pavilion at Expo Dubai.

Daniel Schaer, Comissioner General of the Estonian Pavilion, brings out the top 3 reasons for foreign investors to visit the Estonian Pavilion: “Business lounge presenting all of our partners, business concierge service with Estonia briefings and the best kept secret, Taste Estonia restaurant.”

And before a memorable dinner at our restaurant, take a tour in our unicorn factory and meet the 40+ promising companies innovating the way we used to do things earlier. Of course, everyone in Expo is presenting something unseen and innovative, but the truth is, as an investor, the Estonian Pavilion has something special – we know how to make good business out of ideas! Estonia has a world-class track record in building unicorns. So far, Estonia has been the birthplace of seven unicorns: Skype in 2005, Playtech in 2007, Wise in 2015, Bolt in 2018, Pipedrive in 2020, Zego and in 2021. That’s 5.3 unicorns per capita. And it makes Estonia a world leader in unicorns per capita.

All the secrets and hidden pearls of Estonian unicorn factory are at your fingertips at the Estonian Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai. The only thing you need to do, is to just step in the secret blue unicorn cube.
