Lawyers on Fire spoke with Kaspar Korjus in Tallinn/Estonia,
a truly inspiring and thriving startup hub. Inspiring indeed was the discussion
with Kaspar as well which is why we split it into two parts. Kaspar has been
the most cited Estonian by global press in 2017 and 2018. He is listed by
Forbes Estonia `30 under 30Â´ people as #1 in Technology and Finance and was
elected by US CTO Megan Smith as one of the 20 global digital leaders. In 2019
Kaspar was nominated as JCI 10 Most Outstanding Young Persons of the World.
Furthermore, Kaspar was awarded the Order of Orange-Nassau by the King of the
Netherlands, His Majesty Willem-Alexander, in recognition of his notable
contributions for the betterment of societies worldwide, making him one of the
youngest knights you could ever encounter.
If thatâ€™s not enough, he has recently co-founded Pactum.
Pactum helps companies to improve every contract they have ever signed by
automatically negotiating contracts on a massive scale. The system learns to
understand the value of different contract terms and uses AI to perform
high-quality and considerate negotiations that reach a win-win outcome.
The second part of the interview is about Kasparâ€™s role in
transforming both the public and private sector globally. As founding Managing
Director of Estonian e-Residency (2014-2019), Kaspar is helping governments
worldwide to become truly digital and borderless.Â

In the second part of our interview with Kaspar he shares some behind-the-scenes insights and learnings from his journey of e-Residency, which may well be one of the most important government experiments in the 21st century. The program started nearly 20 years ago after Estonia decided to become a fully digital society and to issue a digital identity to every resident. From there, it went on to welcome foreign citizens to Estoniaâ€™s digital global village.Kaspar Korjus was the Managing Director of e-Residency in the Government of Estonia. Kaspar started to run the program at the age of 26 years and today moved on to his next venture Pactum which we discussed with him in the recent LOF podcast. Kaspar is also listed as #1 on the Forbes Estoniaâ€™s 30 Under 30 in Technology and Finance list. Kaspar is fascinated by the idea of disrupting the governments to become service providers like any other company. He rarely gives interviews so we are absolutely grateful he took time to meet us.
