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
