Estonia, the new European startup hub?

With the startup boom taking over the planet in the past few years, it seems that there is one particular country that is especially successful in bringing an extraordinary number of new IT companies into the world. This super-country is Estonia (home of Qubit Labs), a small country in the Baltics with a population just over 1.3 million people. But being as prolific as it is, Estonia holds the world record in startup companies per person. Must be something in that Estonian air, right?
