NECC & Enterprise Estonia @Oslo Innovation Week 2019

NECC & Enterprise Estonia @Oslo Innovation Week 2019
Date: Wednesday, 25.09.2019
Time: 11:30 – 23:00
Location: Gamle Museet & MESH, Oslo

Roughly the same size as Switzerland, but with 6 times fewer people – just 1.3 million – Estonia has to compensate in other ways. Our superpowers? Digital society and innovative mindset.

Named “The most advanced digital society in the world” by Wired, ingenious Estonians are pathfinders, who have built an efficient, secure and transparent ecosystem that saves time and money. With 99% of Estonian public services online – you only need to get out of the house for real estate transactions or in order to get divorced – over 820 years of worktime is being saved.

This digital comfort together with the startup-friendly economic environment (1st in the world according to Index Venture) is what makes Estonia innovation hotspot.

Proof: Skype, Playtech, Transferwise, and Bolt – no other small country has produced that many unicorns!
