“I’m humbled and honored to be included for the 2nd year in a row with such a prestigious group of people making important contributions to identity technologies and the digital economy worldwide,” said Jana Krimpe, founder and CEO of B.EST Solutions. “B.EST Solutions’ team has been working last 10 years to develop and provide Good Mobile Identity to everybody, including people from rural areas with low financial or computer literacy, and I am extremely proud that Azerbaijan launches the world first m-Residency program based on Asan Imza. Azerbaijan has been rapidly expanding its digital services portfolio in recent years, putting it ahead of many western countries in terms of ease of online business. At the same time, it has been trying to diversify its traditionally petro-based economy to focus more widely on trade and socio-economical development. m-Residency fits very neatly into that effort, with promotion of the program tightly linked to the country’s new Digital Trade Hub”.
