e-Estonia at the Mobile World Congress 2016

15.02.2016

Estonia is showcasing its cutting edge technological solutions on the e-Estonia stand, between 22-25 February at the Mobile World Congress. Visitors to the stand will be able to find out more about e-Residency, the government-issued trans-national digital identity that is available to everyone across the world, and will be able to apply for it on-site. Ten different companies will demonstrate
Estonia’s top-notch mobile technological solutions.

​Investment in revolutionary ICT infrastructure, the adoption of e-services, and a world-class, multilingual ICT talent pool have established Estonia as one of the best new locations for developing, testing, and implementing ICT services - on a worldwide basis. Estonia was the first country in the world to launch several innovations, such as i-voting, e-taxation, and e-Residency, to name but a few. Through Estonia’s latest innovation, the e-Residency project, the country is building a borderless digital society and unleashing the world’s entrepreneurial potential. Financial and web service
providers, start-ups, and developers alike are all invited to build on the e-Residency platform and take advantage of the secure eID system to avoid country-specific solutions and have quick access to international markets. The same e-Residency platform can help individual entrepreneurs and
freelancers easily establish and run location-independent businesses online.

Estonia is participating in the Mobile World Congress for what is already the fourth time, and four of the companies on our joint stand have been there each year, these being Fortumo, Nutiteq, Ecofleet, and SK. On the Estonian stand participates two recognition-received companies. Malwarebytes provides software designed to protect consumers and businesses against malicious threats that consistently escape detection by other antivirus solutions. Malwarebytes products were recognized as a finalist in the 2015 SC Magazine Excellence Awards for outstanding leadership and achievement in information security. Specifically, Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit was recognized in the Best Vulnerability Management Category. Participating company GoSwift, which manages the virtual queuing of vehicles and people at border crossings, ports, and tourist attractions, has won a
prestigious international award from the International Transport Forum at the OECD - the 2015 Transport Achievement Award.

On the Estonian stand there are also companies that offer software development solutions as well as IT services, including Fortumo, Mooncascade, SK, Mobi Lab, Nutiteq, Positium, GoSwift, Ecofleet, Bamboo Group, and Malwarebytes. Find out more about the participating Estonian companies in the
