“Today, about 3,500 people work in the Smart Business City, and by 2013 we have planned to increase this figure to about 6,000. Such a number of workers obligates us to provide various additional services besides the most customary ones to help save the workers’ time and the companies’ money. In 2011, we opened a kindergarten on the campus and in autumn 2012 we plan to open a sports club; we also intend to expand and rearrange the parking area and we are opening a direct route to the Tallinn Airport to make it even easier and faster to walk to the airport,“ Jostov added.
“In addition to these services we also offer catering, conference and cleaning services and the opportunity to use a personal secretary; we organise various events and the international network for start-up companies and investors; we have partnered with an international mentorship programme ¬¬– the Startup Wise Guys accelerator – that will open its doors in the Smart Business City in April. We wish to meet the requests of even the most demanding companies and people, and we are constantly expanding and improving our portfolio of available services,“ Jostov added.
