Estonia’s e-residents form an international chamber
Several e-residents, spanning the globe from Vancouver, Canada, to Seoul, Korea, have formed EERICA – the Estonian E-Residents’ International Chamber Association.
Nine e-residents of Estonia came together in May to form EERICA. The independent, non-profit association seeks to bring e-residents together and promote their interests as an official group. The official launch party, attended by five of the founding members and over 50 guests from Estonia and abroad, was held in Tallinn the evening before Latitude59, the largest annual startup and tech conference in Estonia.
Christoph Huebner, who serves as the first president of the organisation, began talking to other e-residents about the need for an organisation like this several months ago. After several conversations, he drafted a vision document to share with the group. Over the next several weeks, the group collaborated via Google Docs and Zoom to draft the manifesto now published online.
