In contrast to many other EU countries, every Estonian, regardless of where they live, has a state-issued digital identity - known as e-residency. In this context, Estonia is far ahead of all other countries and has found another, uncomplicated way to digitalize itself even more. 

In Estonia, anyone can use their ID card or smart ID to identify themselves digitally and use electronic services (see also the article on X-Road, X-ROAD - Estonia's blockchain-based data highway - Telescope effect). Estonia is also creating the possibility for people who are not citizens to apply for e-residency.

For example, e-residency can be particularly useful if you want to set up a company digitally. International start-ups benefit from this option and realize the dream of their own company regardless of location. 

We have shared many valuable administrative and operational insights from our partner Enterprise Estonia and our friends from Startup Estonia and EERICA, as well as various successful e-residents and founders in our latest Telescope Effect Startup Hub toolkit - "How Estonian e-Residency can help build a business 100% online". 

Our partner the Embassy of the Republic of Estonia has also supported this event and in cooperation with them, we are able to offer you the e-Residency on November 4 and 5, 2021 in the D(e)-Estonia showroom.

To take advantage of this offer, please follow these simple steps. Of course you can also contact our Estonia project manager Sonja Hahn-Tomer (; she will be happy to help you.
