    Their patience paid off months later when big name venture capital firms Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and Sequoia Capital invested $25 million in Google. Business is not for the overly cautious or the faint of heart. If you’re going to run a business or invest in a company, you have to be willing to take risks, big and small.

    What we do miss is capital. In Estonia, there are also some angel investors from EstBAN , local accelerators and smaller venture capital firms for pre-seed investments but you’ll mostly need to look outside for funding to scale. Although, life is at least 4 times cheaper in Estonia, meaning it's much more cost efficient to build your startup here and we can survive with much less capital here as well, but only until we want to start scaling.
