At the age of 20, I was the only IT lawyer in Estonia. It was the 1990s, and the country had only recently regained its independence. I was hired by the Prime Minister’s office to write the country’s Digital Signatures Act – one of the first in the world. My journey took me from the Estonian Central Securities Depository to an executive chair at NASDAQ Tallinn Stock Exchange. I liked the jobs, but I never felt fulfilled. After 12 years at the exchange, I finally mustered up the courage to become an entrepreneur. I thought, “If I don’t do it now, I will regret it for the rest of my life.” I founded Funderbeam, the world’s startup marketplace. I think entrepreneurs are born with passion to make a difference, both in our own lives and within industries that have remained unchanged for years. If you believe in your vision and you know how to execute it, then everything is possible.
