Building a Global Equity Funding and Trading Platform from Estonia, The Startup Nation – Kaidi Ruusalepp, CEO & Founder of Funderbeam

For many years Estonia has quietly but steadily built a name for itself in the startup world. With its 10 Unicorns, and its astounding 1 unicorn for every 130,000 inhabitants this small but extremely progressive nation is now capturing the attention of the world.  Nordic Fintech Magazine recently traveled to the wonderful capital city of Tallinn to try to puzzle together what makes Estonia the Startup Nation.

And who better to start with in our quest to uncover the ingredients of Estonia’s entrepreneurial concoction than Kaidi Ruusalepp, who is not only CEO and Founder of the Global Equity and Trading Platform Funderbeam, but also President of the Estonian Founders Society and advisor to the President of Estonia Mr. Alar Karis on digital and tech matters.  In this fascinating conversation with Kaidi we talk about her entrepreneurial journey, the unique value proposition that Funderbeam creates with its liquidity market for secondaries, and some of the unique cultural traits and attributes that have propelled Estonia into Startup Stardom. 

Listen to how Estonian success cases like Skype, Playtech and Wise  have combined a duty for nourishment of their ecosystem with investment and global tech sector knowhow to create second and third generations of startups that have chosen Estonia as their base to scale Globally. If Estonia has not been in your radar, that’s about to change.
