Accelerating in Estonia

With 220+ investments in early-stage startups, we are one of the top investors in the broader CEE region and Nordics. Our Portfolio has had already two major exits – VitalFields and Stepshot, and the overall startup survival and success rate is above 77%. We strive to find the hidden treasures at overlooked markets by helping founders build successful and international businesses, in that way also boosting the local ecosystems.
Estonia, the little country of fewer than 2 million inhabitants has managed to develop one of the most technologically advanced systems of government serving as a role model to many. 99% of its public services are electronic. E-health system has been running for more than a decade, and Estonia was the first country in the world to elect its parliament via e-voting system.
Estonia is the home country of Startup Wise Guys and since the end of 2020, it’s home to five startup unicorns, producing 5 out of 6 Baltic unicorns. The number of startups in 2020 went up by 61.69% compared to 2019 despite the global pandemic. With its convenient onboarding system for foreign founders – a special Startup Visa and E-residency program – it has become a desired destination for tech talent and startup founders from all over the world.
