One of the first European counties to show some welcome economic growth after the financial crisis was one of the very smallest — Estonia.

Its younger citizens are exceptionally savvy when it comes to all things digital and it’s become a haven for business start-ups.  But lately that early growth has slowed. And many are now starting to wonder if the new digital wealth can be retained as entrepreneurs take their ideas abroad.
