    Looking at our dropping export figures I have decided to do something about it which could help us to become more visible out there. So other folks know also who are we and what we estonians can do the best.  Now, the question is: How to measure the coolest and most valuable brands what we have? I recon there are 3 major criterias only: 1.Popularity of the brand  2.Total net profit & 3.Innovativity, which gives a potential rise. Surely, it is about money but not always, because there are also charity brands which are not about money but goodwill & deeds for other people. Brands can be different. Some make company brands, some make personal brands like artists and sportsman and some make state brands like the British Royal family, which is valued more than £86BN today. All in all the branding is important marketing tool for any company. It is all about the imago and its likability for as wide audience as possible. Lets take this well known fruit’ company as a sample, I mean the Apple  : ) How on earth they made it?  Actually it takes so much effort from the sparkling idea to product design to marketing, but all it starts usually from one person. In this case we all know it was Steve Jobs. Yes, he was eccentric but also a novel character who was willing to work hard to fulfill his vision for the better PC which I got it on my desk now.. R.I.P. Steve! Therefore I have started recently our very own Top 100 Estonian Brands to show to the World what we are good at and why is it cool to visit Estonia and to make business with us :)  Yeah, this some 1,3M nation by the Baltic Sea is mainly known by its pretty girls, but it also has managed to create many wonderful brands from which some have become World famous like  Paiste , Estonia Piano, Minox, TransferWise  and  Skype.

    Although there is a lot happening at the innovation & tech sector already still there are many flaws which need our urgent attention. It is not a secret that Europes tech sector is running way behind US, Japan, South-Korea and even China. The gap seems to grow even wider if we don’t make a move together. Therefore Finno-Ugric Innovation Corridor (FUIC) cooperation, founded by Finnish Inventors’ Forum, has set its standards & priorities at Budapest workshop last week, focusing on private or free inventors in Finland, Hungary & Estonia. The matter seems to be relevant as many of our all time best inventions like Skype, Minox, Schmit’s Telescope-camera and even the latest one – GrabCAD , all have come from private sector free inventors. And just because of that we should turn our attention to those simple people who have made it in the past and even more to those who can make it happen in the future! So it has been well proved that there are some great people amongst us, who can invent this kind of stuff outside the industry & companies – just at their garages and backyards ! Taking all this on board, the FUIC has started its initiative and here is a short press-release of the Workshop which took place at the National Innovation Office in Budapest :
