IT sector competences

IT plays a central role in life in Estonia because people trust the IT solutions our companies create and are eager to use them to make everyday life easier. Our ambitious startup community dares to create innovative solutions that change the world including services as different as Mobile Parking and self-driven delivery robots. The common denominator for Estonian IT companies is their creativity and the ability to ignore the concept of impossible.

  • 3,6B € turnover
  • 5,9% of the entire workforce
  • 4800 IT companies
  • over 130 countries

Essential e-solutions in Estonia that enable the digital society to function smoothly were all built by local Estonian companies. Our IT sector has over 20 years of expertise and experience in automating public and private sector services. And so today, virtually all state-related operations can be done online 24/7 – prescriptions are issued digitally and only a tiny fraction of individual tax declarations are filed on paper.

Today, Estonia has shared its e-governance journey with 60 governments and exported its solutions to over 130 countries around the world. The Estonian IT sector and ambitious startup community (known affectionately as the Estonian Mafia) dare to create innovative e-services that change the world – from Skype to e-Residency. In fact, Estonia is one of the top countries that has the most startups per capita established than anywhere else in Europe!
