Estonia-Japan Startup Meetup, EDGEof, 水曜日, 20. 2月 2019

You might know Estonia as this small country in the North East of Europe with 1.3 million people. You might know the beautiful nature, clean air, or even by our world-class e-services. Well, this is your chance to get to know even more about it! 
Today Estonia might as well be named Unicornia, since it seems we have found the secret to breeding unicorns. Skype, Playtech, Transferwise & Taxify - do any of those names seem familiar? Well, these are the Estonian bred unicorns, meaning startup companies valued more than 1 Billion dollars. The investments to Estonian startups are skyrocketing and the startup ecosystem is booming!
Come meet Startup Estonia and our friends on February 20th in EDGEOf! There will be drinks and snacks and most definitely some great discussions and building bridges between Japanese and Estonian founders & entrepreneurs.
