"We are pleased that Estonia and Estonian entrepreneurs - through Enterprise Estonia - have chosen San Jose as their West Coast landing pad to establish strong relationships with other top global technology companies here in the Silicon Valley,' said San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed as he and members of the San Jose City Council warmly welcomed Estonian Prime Minister Andrus Ansip to the 'Capital of Silicon Valley' last week.
Later in the afternoon, Prime Minister Ansip ceremonially opened Enterprise Estonia, a new "tech embassy" in Downtown San Jose. Located at the US Market Access Center, an international business incubator sponsored by the City of San Jose's Redevelopment Agency, Enterprise Estonia will facilitate the needs of Estonian businesses and entrepreneurs.
"As a crossroads for global talent, innovation and capital, San Jose is delighted to be aligned with the Estonian entrepreneurial spirit and to have the Enterprise Estonia Technology Embassy in our Downtown. Estonia and San Jose have similar characteristics: a workforce with a progressive technology culture and intellectual vigor that drives innovation. By building strong ties with each other, we will both grow our economies here and throughout the world," Reed said.
Enterprise Estonia Technology Embassy, will also provide financing, counsel, partnership opportunities and training for entrepreneurs and research and development institutions.
