Bringing together students, scientist and entrepreneurs

Our innovation and business centre Mektory brings together researchers, students and entrepreneurs offering young people inspiration, knowledge, and resources to create and develop student start-ups and other innovative business ideas.
TalTech is an academic opinion leader as well as the flagship of Estonian engineering and technology. The courage to change, the will to evolve, and desire to have knowledge-based discussions make TalTech a think tank in academic discussions.
