Our walking tour will introduce you to entrepreneurial life in Tallinn, offering you the unique experience to learn the basics from a local entrepreneur and digital marketer. A former tv performer, originally from Austria, I now run my own local startup. Over the past 2 years, I have been a participant in many a hackathon in Estonia and Latvia, as well as participated in accelerators. My network is big and colourful, and I am always happy to help other innovators (or the innovation curious) grow and learn. For the past year, I have worked as a local guide for Lokafy, hence am also a source of knowledge on how to integrate best into the local culture and mindset (if relocation is an issue). During our tour, we will walk from Hobujaama to Telliskivi, learn about local startup, investment and entrepreneurial culture as we pass by a few of the most famous startup incubators, accelerators and startup facilitators in town. Throughout our walk, I will give you the knowledge to navigate the scene fast and efficient as a newbie (e-)resident, entrepreneur or startup investor. Connect with the local ecosystem, accelerators, VCs, investors, and co-working spaces fast. Learn how to approach Estonian culture, and life in general, as a curious, foreign investor or entrepreneur. Save precious time by knowing who to talk to, how and when. Book your experience now!
Hello, Grüss Gott and Tere! I am an Austrian e-commerce entrepreneur and performance artist, who originally stumbled upon Estonia via their e-residency programme. Eventually, I decided to move to Tallinn, because I fell in love with the beautiful landscape and its many opportunities. BBC Travel recently featured my input on digitalisation in Estonia on their blog: http://www.bbc.com/travel/story/20190630-five-countries-on-the-frontline-of-tech I designed this walking tour to introduce foreign entrepreneurs and investors to Tallinn as a location for doing business, and introduce (future) (e-)residents to the local peculiarities. As a former tourist Guide (Lokafy, GYG), and with a unique perspective on Tallinn, I can give you both a cultural as well as an economic overview on Tallinn and its business and startup scene.
Every guest will receive a ca. 7 pages long document, featuring Links and hints on where to book, how to find accommodation,…
From general, practical knowledge on how to navigate here as a foreigner (on business), sightseeing tips and shopping, as well as introducing you to the business centres, incubators, and workspaces, I can also give you tips on where to get authentic, Estonian food, and see some amazing places regular tourists rarely to never get to see.
Please let me know 1-2 days in advance, so that I can adapt the experience to your personal preferences and needs. The exact time of the tour can also be adapted to your needs (on most dates).
