EBRD and Estonia to design an environment supporting innovative start-ups
The EBRD together with Estonia’s Ministry of Finance and the country’s Financial Services Authority has launched its first technical assistance Fintech project in the country. An inaugurating workshop gathered more than 35 attendees that represented a wide range of market participants including start-ups, banks, and innovators.
The EBRD-led project will allow the authorities to learn more about innovative businesses, while companies will be able to test new ideas with real customers utilizing the dexterity and innovation that start-ups are renowned for in a controlled regulatory environment.
Over the coming three months the EBRD, the European Commission, and the Estonian authorities will work on benchmarking the technologies as well as designing and creating the framework relevant for the successful implementation of a digital sandbox.
