A pavilion selling Estonian student companies’ products was opened in Tallinn Old City Harbour’s cruise area. This gives cruise tourists an opportunity to buy products made by Estonian student companies and it also enables student companies to get a good international sales experience.
According to Sirle Arro, the Head of Marketing and Communication Department of Port of Tallinn, the port is happy about every contribution that adds value to cruise tourists’ Tallinn experience. “In our cruise area we wish to offer the best selection of Estonian quality products and we are happy to support companies for whom conquering foreign markets may be more difficult,” added Arro.
Products sold in Tallinn cruise area include Spoony chocolate spoons, chocolate board game „Sweet Questions“, wooden ties, granite phone cases and other witty souvenirs. The pavilion stays open until September 30th.
Business and economic education in Estonian schools is organized by a foundation called Junior Achievement Estonia, which since 1992 gives young people a risk-free business experience and the courage to choose the path of an entrepreneur. In this academic year a record breaking number of 297 student companies are active in primary, secondary and vocational schools all over Estonia.
