Karoli Hindriks, an Estonian entrepreneur, was vacationing in Malaysia when inspiration struck - the beautiful holiday island spurned ideas of a startup focused on spreading digital talent across the world: Jobbatical.
Having hit a number of achievements in the business world at a young age, Estonian Karoli Hindriks is widely known as a successful entrepreneur in the tiny Baltic nation of 1.3 million people.
