Estonia-Japan Startup meetup: Opportunities for Japanese Founders in Estonia and Beyond
You might know Estonia as this small country in the North East of Europe with 1.3 million people. You might know the beautiful nature, clean air, or even by our world class e-services. Well, this is your chance to get to know even more about it!

Today Estonia might as well be named Unicornia, since it seems we have found the secret to breeding unicorns. Skype, Playtech, Transferwise & Taxify - do any of those names seem familiar? Well, these are the Estonian bred unicorns. The investments to Estonian startups are skyrocketing and the ecosystem is booming! You can read about what has been going on in our small but vibrant ecosystem here!

Come meet Startup Estonia and our friends on September 12 in FabCafe Shibuya! There will be drinks and snacks and most definitely some great discussions and building bridges between Japanese and Estonian founders & entrepreneurs.

Get to know:

  • How to start your business in Estonia?

  • What is Estonian e-residency and startup visa and how to apply

  • Who’s who in the ecosystem and how you can join?

  • What kinds of investments and public support is available for foreign founders

Joining Startup Estonia at this event are Sten Tamkivi, CPO of Topia and one of the first employees of Skype; Sten-Kristian Saluveer, Tokyo-Tallinn based digital media entrepreneur and ecosystem innovator from Storytek; representative of Vivita International, a Mistletoe portfolio company (lead by Mr. Taizo-Son) and Villu Reiman from Estonian Foreign Investment Agency.

We will open the doors at 18:00 and start the official part of the event at 18:30. You can expect some inspirational talks about the Estonian startup ecosystem and get some tips and tricks to help you on the road to joining it. So don’t hesitate, join us!
