Connectivity has perhaps never been as crucial as it’s become over the past two years. Finding new ways of bringing people together in an increasingly digital world has taken centre stage for tech trailblazers across the globe.
There’s one country in particular where this has become a national sport.
Estonia’s path to becoming the world’s most digitally enabled nation began when the country committed to making IT a pillar of its national strategy. That bold choice paid off. Estonia now ranks as Europe’s most entrepreneurial country and has produced a whopping ten unicorn startups—and counting. This high concentration of tech excellence sets Estonia apart as a no-brainer destination for innovation seekers across industries.
At MWC Barcelona this February, Estonian tech is on show, with top players ready to inspire and be inspired—to take on the future of connectivity.
