Brexit is a mess, but UK startups may find refuge in Estonia’s e-Residency

I’m not going to try to explain Brexit or where it’s headed, because it’ll be outdated before the day is out. It’s a mess no matter what your stance is, and it’s shrouded in uncertainty. What is clear is that everyone needs to prepare for the worst case scenario. The UK government has tried to come up with solutions to make the breakup easier on the country’s startups, but it hasn’t addressed the biggest issue: losing access to the EU single market. Luckily, Estonia offers a way for the UK to ma...

But the account also had plenty of “gotcha” fees and didn’t pay much interest. I kept that bank account open until I moved and it was no longer convenient to u...
