  • Mate Rimac – from inventor to the Startup company

    Posted on June 11th, 2015 Mr. Leo Siemann No comments

    Inventors and startuppers are almost two different kind of people, well at least by their mindsets. In one hand so close, unyet so different in their attitude from which end to start fulfilling their dreams. But surely both are big Dreamers, persistant and hardcore achievers. Still there will be one in a million from those who can do perfectly both – invent and then commercialize their ideas. Here is the story of 5 times Guinness recordholder Mate Rimac who is doing something impossible: Making a supercar company out of Balkans and not just:

    As for me, this is a prime sample of how different could be a startupper from inventor. One inventing to fix the World and the other making business out of it. How about you? Whatever is the answer, you still have to team up with many good people to scale your business and to make your dream wild out there. Good Luck my friend !!

  • CoFounder – The First pan-European Startup Magazine

    Tarmo Virki & me @Garage 48

    As Europe is seeing its first massive startup boom I spoke to the man who keeps his close eye on latest developments in this sector – Tarmo Virki. Being a journalist of past 20 years at outlets like Reuters & Forbes, his focus has turned on to startups. Last summer he and a few other co-founders decided the booming sector was mature enough to face real, old-school journalism.

    They decided to try to do something crazy, something really old school – a print magazine at the time of the digital revolution. “The idea was so crazy, we just had to go ahead and try this,” says Virki, for who one of the early positive signs was the energy youngsters from Arctic Startup, largest startup blog in Scandinavia, were willing to put into developing a print publication. There are reasons for this — niche print magazines which have their audience have done well despite the scrutiny from online publishing. It might be because of the experience – browsing the iPad isn’t just quite comparable with the fine touch and smell of the gloss paper and the way we browse magazines in trains and hotel lobbies …

  • Remarkable construction of the engine by Georgi Vassiljev

    Posted on March 4th, 2013 Mr. Leo Siemann No comments

    We know how electric cars were turned down in America in 1930s. We also know the reason why –  because of the boom in oil industry. As fossil energy is running out now We need more eco-engines and way more alternative energy to run our motobikes, cars & boats. But how to achieve that? Some have made it  already, but still a lot more progress needs to be done !

    Retired engineer Georgi Vassiljev from Tallinn has come up with the solution, which is so simple, fast & small that can well beat the existing 4-stroke engines by its power and also by the production cost ! From Today Georgi is searching for a manufacturing company, which could produce his engine in good quality and quantity. Therefore I have come to help Georgi to find this company and I have published a part of his patent (PCT) first, to get the attention of top-notch manufacturer. If you seize it as your opportunity for the further innovation and possible lead on the market, please contact to me very soon by email: leo@estonia100.com

  • “Ahhaa” can thrill you well !

    Posted on October 27th, 2009 Mr. Leo Siemann No comments

    As I walked in Freedom Square , Tallinn few days ago I noticed quite few things have changed since my last visit in August 2008.  There is a brandnew Monument standing on the hillside and very modern steps lead to tunnel with  parking facilities underneath. On my way to tunnel I saw that contemporary science centre “Ahhaa” had opened its new exhibition.  I must admit it´s in a great location and it has quite exciting things in it !  The centre is a smart place for kids and adults to learn how things work in physics and chemistry. Heureka Science Centre from Finland has brought over its own exhibition as well, which is presented within “Ahhaa”.  It  takes us to the glamorous world of Formula 1. The staff of the centre is very frendly and you can even celebrate your birthday over there with 4D adventure soon !
