#EstonianMafia is the tag uniting the small but tight Estonian startup community, wherever they might be in the world
#EstonianMafia Wall of Fame in LIFT99 Tallinn Hub is a celebration of the biggest startup success stories and strongest founders from Estonia. It was born in the early days of Estonian startup scene when LIFT99 Tallinn Hub and Garage48 Hackathons were still under the same organization. After the move to the current space in Telliskivi in 2016, the father of Skype, Niklas Zennström helped to reopen the #EstonianMafia Wall of Fame.
His signature at the bottom represents the seed that Skype once planted – its tremendous impact on Estonian startup ecosystem. Since then, #EstonianMafia Wall of Fame has been growing every year, welcomed many well-known visitors, including the President of Estonia, and it has become an
iconic symbol of the Estonian startup scene.
There are currently 21 legendary Estonian startups represented on the Wall of Fame. The inclusion criteria is based on annual growth, annual revenue or funding of the startup, and the amount of
taxes paid to Estonian Government.
