Lights, camera, action!
Since 2020, hosting a video Q&A with Pärtel Tomberg, our CEO and Founder, has become a popular tradition. This year, we held it in July, and it was great to connect directly with investors and answer your queries again. If you missed it or want to rewatch it, check out the video here.
Collaborations and partnerships
