Estonia is #1 country in billion-dollar companies (“unicorns”) founded per capita in Europe and #2 globally. In the last 10 years, the startup community in Estonia has raised a total of more than €1.6 billion and 7 unicorns have been founded by Estonians and/or in Estonia. For the last 5 years, its startup sector has grown 30% YoY, whether measured by revenues, jobs created, or fundraising. This trajectory will result in 30% of Estonia’s GDP coming from the tech sector by 2030.
Estonia’s startup community is as vibrant as ever. On the heels of the $11 billion listing of Estonian fintech startup Wise in July, join us for an overview of the Estonian investment landscape, its investors, and their results over the recent past, as well as for pitches by Estonia’s top investment funds open to new LPs.
The event is hosted by:
+ Ms Maris Prii, Director of Business Development and FDI in Silicon Valley for the Estonian Investment Agency;
+ Mr Alvar Soosaar, director of US Investment and Trade at Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Estonia.
