Estonia-based LeapIN raises €1.3 million to empower anyone to become a global entrepreneur

The Estonian startup LeapIN is currently fundraising up to €1.3 million on the Funderbeam crowdinvesting platform. The funding round will close by the end of this week.

Made possible by Estonia’s e-Residency, platform which launched in 2014, LeapIN empowers anyone to become a global entrepreneur and focus on doing business, rather than managing their business. Founded in 2015, LeapIN aims to provide freelancers with the necessary tools to thrive in this 21st century cross-border business environment. It offers a turn-key solution to remotely start and run a location independent company with a business bank account.

LeapIN and other startups are paving the way for a rise of digital nomads, freelancers, contractors, remote workers and more. This new chapter of work is just beginning and it’s fuelling some new ideas such as coworking and the ‘gig economy’.

For someone starting up solo or doing work in the gig economy it can be a daunting task working out the ropes of incorporating a business, applying for a bank account and accepting payments from clients. That’s where LeapIN shines and enables anyone to easily have everything taken care of, so they are ready to thrive in these new ways of working. Based in Europe, LeapIN users of the platform have access to the world’s largest single market.

Now, anyone wishing to become a freelancer, digital nomad or those looking to build a location independent business can take fully advantage of a solution unavailable elsewhere. With the e-Residency & LeapIN, it enables the focus to be on building and growing the business, not managing the accounting & compliance. LeapIN was founded two years ago in Tallinn, and has now grown to over 20 employees.

Erik, the CEO of LeapIN, stated: “The investment we receive will help us continue growth and access new markets. We’re also building more automation technologies to make the process even easier for our customers to truly run a global business, without paperwork, stress or the pains found elsewhere.”
