Abstract

The purpose of this article is to investigate the technological attributes of Estonian e-Residency that facilitates or hinder its adoption for international virtual entrepreneurship. To conduct the study, the theory of Diffusion of Innovations is applied and a qualitative study of adopters of e-Residency for entrepreneurial purposes is conducted. The findings show a variety of attributes of e-Residency that to varying degrees influence the adoption process including felt needs, perceived risk and uncertainty. The article corroborates and adds to previous research on the adoption of technology and e-services by investigating a particular type of e-service, namely e-Residency.
