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!
The goal of e-Estonia Briefing Centre is to inspire global policy makers, political leaders, corporate executives, investors and international media with the success story of e-Estonia and build links to leading IT service providers.
