At Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki 2015, CEO of Creative Mobile Vlad Funtikov spoke about his home country.

With a population of just 1.3 million, it’s spawned companies such as Skype, Transferwise and Fortumo and one of the most internet-connected and online integrated countries in the world.

“We’re obsessed with communications, early adoption of online banking, etc. There’s a base of really strong programming talent,” Funtikov said.

He also said while it’s hard to recruit central Europeans to move to Estonia, it is a great gateway for Eastern European talent. For example, Creative Mobile has recruited heavily from Ukraine.
