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.

At 16, she became the youngest inventor in Estonia with a registered patent after transforming a school fashion project (a pedestrian reflector) into a successful business.
