Startup Nations Summit - Tallinn 2017


Startup Nations Summit Policy Hack 

At the Startup Nations Summit in Tallinn, Estonia, this November, policy shapers and experts from more than 60 countries will have the opportunity to take their solutions from idea to proof of concept. The Startup Nations Summit Policy Hack is a collaborative way of developing policies and bringing together teams of startup representatives.

Each team will leave the SNS and the policy hack with a solid, valid policy lever, ready to make a difference in their home country. The mentor support will continue for six months after the hack in Tallinn, for solution implementation and support. 

The SNS Policy Hack is intended to help those who are ready to move from a relatively well-defined policy idea to an early implementation or tested policy stage.

As part of the hack, mentors will continue to support the team for six months after the in-person event in Tallinn, for solution implementation and support. Expert judges include:
