I founded the first digital media agency in Estonia at the age of 18 and have stayed on the forefront of internet, user experience design and software development scene since 1996. After co-founding three service companies I joined a startup called Skype as an early executive. I rode that roller coaster for over 8 years to ~300M active users, ~30% share of all international calling minutes in the world and a $8.5B exit to MSFT.
I value a tolerant, open and creative society, speak up for entrepreneurship, support the startup movement, occasionally invest, push for better tech education and have advised President Ilves of Estonia on the above. I also hold a number of management and advisory board seats and blog at sten.tamkivi.com.
Specialties: Leading people and products on both technical and creative sides of internet businesses, internal and public communications. MS in Management from Stanford GSB.
