The event is mainly targeted to companies interested in ICT, health-tech, AI, defence and cybersecurity. The event is co-organised by Estonian Ministry of Foreign Aairs, swissICT, and three main digital clusters in Estonia: ICT, Connected Health and Defence.
Why do business with Estonia?
Estonia is known as one of the most digitally advanced societies in the world, with 99% of state services available online and the first country to use blockchain to ensure nation-wide data integrity. As a result, Estonian firms are on the cutting edge of digital innovation.
Furthermore, the country celebrates and seeks to unleash entrepreneurial activity, which has led to the
highest number of unicorns per capita. Thanks to Estonia’s innovative technologies, skilled professionals
and Nordic business ethics, partnering with its companies can significantly help to grow your business.
The event will be opened by Christian Hunziker, CEO of swissICT and Toomas Kukk, Ambassador of
Estonia to Switzerland. Nele Leosk, Estonian Ambassador-at-Large for Digital Affairs, will share the latest
information on the Estonian digital industry to build ties and open opportunities with Swiss business.
Pascal Kauffmann, Founder & CEO of Mindfire & Co-founder of Starmind, will provide his views on digital
developments in Switzerland and how these can lead to new business opportunities.
The main focus will be B2B matchmaking between Estonian and Swiss business. This will be followed
by the Swiss Digital Economy Awards ceremony that everyone is warmly invited to also attend.
