#EstonianMafia is the term uniting our small but tight tech community. 

The father of Skype, Niklas Zennström helped us to reopen the #EstonianMafia Wall of Fame - a wall of the most successful Estonian tech companies. His signature at the bottom represents the seed that Skype once planted – its tremendous impact on Estonian startup ecosystem. #EstonianMafia Wall of Fame has seen many well-known visitors, including the president of Estonia.

There are currently 16 Estonian tech companies represented on the Wall of Fame with the inclusion criteria based on annual growth, annual revenue and significant taxes paid to Estonian government.
