The embassy said that around 286 new Estonian companies were created by Indians in the process majorly from startups and other freelancers working on sectors such as web designing, software programming, content writing and others.
The Ambassador also noted that Estonia is the world's first country to introduce an e-Residency programme that offers individual access to a government-issued digital ID, adding that it enables the opening of a global European Union (EU) company fully online while working from India.
