The capital of Jarva County in Estonia, the city of Paide was named after the limestone used in the construction of its historical Paide Castle, as it means "white stone". It first appeared in a written script in 1564 as "Paida". This somewhat small city's culture is a reflection of your typical Estonian enclave combining its own unique indigenous heritage that is mostly influenced by its geographic neighbours, that of the Slavs, the Baltic Germans and the Baltic Finns. Coworking venues have opened up in its beautiful streets to cater to its tech-savvy souls (total population 8,226) who have no wish to leave their home ground where smoked fish is a staple, and everything else gets pickled.
Paide has its historical wonders such as its crowning glory, the 6 storied castle constructed around a central tower that was a fortress during the 14th and 15th Centuries. Battered by Russian troops during the Livonian War, it was occupied by the troops of Ivan The Terrible during 1573. Today the tower houses a section of the Jarva County museum.
Paide is no startup hub, but Estonia does have about 550 startups rumbling around within its borders that show a 27% growth compared to the first half of 2017. It has been estimated that about 30% of startup jobs are actually created in offices abroad with much of the recruitment happening via Transferwise, Taxify and Monese to name a few. Estonian startups are increasingly contributing to the country's economy, and it has been estimated that startup companies are creating 5 times more jobs than new businesses of a traditional nature. Coworking in Paide is providing the perfect space for its local creative entrepreneurs to get busy doing their stuff amidst the company of likeminded souls.
