Tartu’s infrastructure and communication services are 99% digitalised and city governance is 100% paperless. The aim is to be smart and efficient, wasting less time, energy and resources.

In Tartu, the journey from a business idea to a prototype is short thanks to the flexible city government, no overbearing bureaucracy, advanced e-services, experienced incubators, and a supportive community. 

Tartu has served as the starting point for several global technological enterprises and developments – Skype, Playtech, Wise, Click & Grow etc. There are several entrepreneurial centres as well, such as: sTARTUp HUB, Spark Hub, University of Tartu Delta Centre, Tartu Science Park, Tartu Centre for Creative Industries, Tartu Biotechnology Park etc.
