Why is it of interest to entrepreneurs? Well, Estonia is a country that has started behaving like a startup. It has even begun offering services specifically designed for location-independent business owners, particularly something called an “E-Residency”.
In this episode, you’ll hear from Estonian E-Resident Joel Runyon. Joel is the man behind the fitness and mindset blog, The Blog of Impossible Things. You’ll also hear from Estonia’s Chief Information Officer, Taavi Kotka. The two share their insights on how E-Residency could pave the path for the future of how nations, citizens and those seeking location independence interact.
