New members of EstBAN


28 Dec, 2020

Every month we introduce to you new EstBAN members and warmly welcome to our investor community. Here is a sneak peak of what they are doing professionally as well as what was the reason why they chose to become EstBAN members. 

Meelis Niinepuu is the co-founder of CIVITTA, he is helping companies and governments with management consulting and external financing (Structural Funds, Horizon 2020, TED contracts etc). Meelis has been secretly flirting with the startup community for the past 10 years as an investor and co-founder in WISER, a private investment vehicle focusing on early stage and seed investments in B2B space. Meelis says that in the light of the upcoming state marriage referendum it is time to formalize his secret relationship with the start-up community by saying „ESTBAN, I do“.  In addition to his 20 years of consulting experience, he will be sharing with us a thirst for projects with impact and beyond ordinary.

Valdur Jaht is partner and investment manager at Avaron, having worked within the asset management industry and dealt predominantly with listed equity and debt for more than 15 years he wanted to experience the more dynamic start-up investing. Valdur hopes that it will help him to grow as an investment professional, while his existing experience can be leveraged by others.

Arko Kadajane has been active in investing for a long time and wanted to expand his network further to be more active in early stage investing. Arko would like to contribute his knowledge and time to entrepreneurs and fellow investors.
