Minter Dialogue with Kalle Palling

Kalle Palling and Minter at Estonia ParliamentKalle Palling has been an MP of the Estonian parliament starting in 2007, when he was just 22 years old. He was very active in pushing through legislation around technology and e-governance, helping Estonia to accelerate its transformation to a digital state, and becoming a lightening rod for change. Among his further credentials, aside from having been on a number of high profile supervisory boards, he’s also an entrepreneur, co-founding Cachet, an insurance marketplace and personal data hub. In this conversation, we discuss the journey that Estonia has undergone to become a beacon of digital states, the challenges of transformation, Kalle’s thoughts on new tech and prospects for the future. A most insightful interview.
