Our learning journey with StarterTallinn
Nargiz Askarova is sharing her experience about the program
“I was very delighted to be part of this amazing program. As a newcomer to Estonia I was struggling to build a wide network around me where I can get support, right guidance for developing my social enterprise newHorizons. Through StarterTallinn I met many amazing people, mentors and advisors. Beside this it was also very useful to increase my business knowledge and skills, such as pitching, communicating, leading, working with team, marketing and so on. One beautiful side of this program was it brought together many international students from different universities from Estonia with different backgrounds. Every Monday for me was very exciting to attend the workshops and learn about leadership, value proposition, design thinking, marketing and so on. ”
