As TeleskopEffekt GmbH, a dynamic subsidiary of Volksbank Mittweida eG, we are ๐Ÿš€ at the forefront of digital transformation in the banking and SME sector. We are driven by the promotion of sustainable innovation ๐Ÿ’ก and offer future-oriented banks and their customers unique perspectives. The partnership with Estonia ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ช, a globally recognized pioneer in digitalization, marks a decisive step for us towards new horizons ๐ŸŒ…. This connection not only symbolizes the overcoming of boundaries in cooperation, but also serves as a living example of how advanced technology and a people-centric approach can shape the digital world in a sustainable way.

In the latest issue of PT Magazine we talked about our Estonia activities and how they came about. For further reading: HERE.

Our relationship with Estonia began in March 2019

Our journey together began during a conference we organized in Mittweida, Saxony. The "Human Conference" provided a platform for content, interaction and interpretation - by people for people ๐Ÿ‘ซ. A striking event of this partnership was the opening of an office in Tallinn, the Estonian Silicon Valley, which has since facilitated direct exchange with successful Estonian companies and stakeholders.

The reason we chose Estonia is because of its pioneering role in digitalization.

Estonia is a shining example in education ๐ŸŽ“, business ๐Ÿ’ผ, administration ๐Ÿ›๏ธ and society. Thanks to direct access, we, as well as German society and companies, benefit enormously from the Estonian start-up scene and Estonia's successful SMEs. Estonia is open-minded, friendly and a proponent of open discourse. The Estonian efforts for continuous innovation and the search for new solutions inspire us every day ๐ŸŒŸ.

Our role in this partnership is clearly defined

We strive to learn from Estonia's impressive digital history and future-oriented vision. The collaboration with Enterprise Estonia and the opening of the D(e)-Estonia showroom in our innovation hub, Werkbank32, allows us to directly experience and offer Estonian know-how and original Estonian formats. The showroom was ceremoniously opened by Mr. Alar Streimann, the former Estonian ambassador to Germany, and offers visitors a virtual trip to Estonia with DigiExpo, live broadcasts to Tallinn, and much more ๐ŸŽ‰.

In addition to these practical insights, we strengthen the exchange through delegation trips to Estonia.

These offer us and other entrepreneurs the unique opportunity to experience Estonia's progressive e-government, innovative trends and pioneering technology partnerships at first hand ๐ŸŒ. Here to the next trip from 22-25.05.2024. A particular highlight is participation in the Latitude 59 -ย Estonian flagship startup and technology event.

In short

Our partnership with Estonia is a living testimony to future-oriented innovation and cross-border progress. We are just at the beginning of an exciting journey leading to an innovative era of digitalization and sustainable development. With Estonia as a pioneer in digitalization and us as a dynamic innovation partner, the possibilities for groundbreaking developments are limitless ๐ŸŒ.

Best regards

Tanja Speckย
