On 30-31 March BerlinBalticNordic.net took a delegation consisting of representatives from startups, established companies and political institutions on a tour to Tallinn in order to explore the Estonian way of digitalization. The group visited local startups and institutions, such as Digix, the E-Estonia Showroom, Tehnopol and Telliskivi and were truly impressed by the creativity and the digital mindset of the people working there.

During our networking lunch at F-Hoone, which is one of the many colourful restaurants centered in Telliskivi Creative City, and the networking dinner at the Sfäär, the participants from Berlin and guests from the local industries had the opportunity to get to know each other better and to discuss possible business connections.

We were very glad to welcome the German Ambassador in Estonia, Christoph Eichhorn as our guest at the networking dinner. Ambassador Eichhorn shared his experience with us and presented his view on the modern digitalized country. Next to him Mrs. Piret Hirv from the Estonian Ministry of Social Affairs welcomed the group and gave the group a brief insight on how the Ministry works and the target values of Estonia.

On the second day we had set up individual meetings for our participants to give them the possibility to directly get in contact with companies their business model matched with and make first concrete contacts within the Estonian digital industry.

Estonia really is a one of the places to be right now. Not only because of all the sightseeing-possibilities but mostly because of the business opportunities it offers and the creative, technology driven mindset of people you can find there. There is a passion for development in the air everywhere you go.
