Estonia
Expert on Startup Policy, Government of Estonia
I help the booming start-up scene in Estonia by co-ordinating government policy on financial instruments (boosting the capital market) and helping the success of supportive measures through the Start-Up Estonia initiative. It is my mission to make Estonia the best place to start a business in Europe. I expect to do it in a way that enhances my own entrepreneurial skills. My previous experience is in e-governance and research policy. I have a MA in social sciences (governance and international relations).
