Family Office Networks Establishes Strategic Partnership With Estonia
Palm Beach, FL – (May 18, 2021) – Family Office Networks (FON), the Estonian Investment Agency (EIA) and Estonia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) today announced a strategic partnership that will help family offices within the FON network to connect to the Estonian business community and discover compelling investment opportunities.
Through a series of webinars hopefully leading to in-person interactions with interesting Estonian companies — via business delegations to the US or investor delegations to Estonia — this partnership seeks to showcase a country that is referred to as the Unicorn Factory for its ability to create the highest per-capita number of billion-dollar companies anywhere in the world.
“Although a country of only 1.3 million people, Estonia has succeeded in creating incredible investment opportunities, so much so that it has earned the nickname “Unicorn Factory,” said Andrew Schneider, Founder and Chairman of Family Office Networks. “We felt that the story needed to be told and embarked on this partnership in order to do so.”
“FON has an unparalleled network of investors looking for unique investment opportunities,” said Alvar Soosaar, Director of US Investment and Trade at the MFA. “Estonia, the land of Skype and TransferWise, has long been a place where savvy investors can find compelling stories.”
“We are excited to open Estonia’s investment ecosystem to family offices,” said Maris Prii, EIA’s Director of US Business Development. “Our hope is to not only bring Estonia and its exciting startups to you via the screen, but to do so soon in person before too long.”
The goal for EIA and MFA is to showcase Estonia’s innovative digital society, compelling business and investment environment, and particularly, its exciting startup scene, to investors and companies in the United States. Together, Ms. Prii’s and Mr. Soosaar’s aim is to advocate on behalf of Estonia’s business community in the US, and to promote foreign direct investment into Estonia.
