e-Estonia: how innovation is is mostly a mindset issue
e-Estonia has been referred to as the most digital society in the world. Every citizen is equipped with a digital identity and companies do business fully online. You can declare your taxes, register companies and even vote online. People and businesses lead a fully digital lifestyle and while the digital transformation process has been ongoing for more than 20 years, it's not so much the technology itself that has made Estonia so successful rather than the mindset transformation that has led to a novel digital society where 99% of public services are available digitally and that has bred most unicorns per capita in the world.
