The e-Residency program favors international startups whose members are in different parts of the world, or who want to expand internationally, without being limited by geographical limitations.
This is because, as members of the digital nation, the board members of a Estonian company can sign legal validity documents with their e-Resident cards. That includes legally binding agreements for your company, hiring people, or making strategic decisions, completely online and distributed. Wherever you are, you can manage your company.
Estonia’s startup ecosystem is one of the richest and most active ones in the world, and Estonia is the European country with the most unicorns (startups with more than 1 billion valuation dollars) per capita. In addition, if your startup is innovating in the area of cryptocurrencies or blockchain, in Estonia you will find a friendly administration and specific licenses to carry out your activity.
