The Education Leaders' Internship Program was initiated by the Good Deed Education Fund with Tallinn Education Department. The Good Deed Education Fund is a philanthropy fund established by new-generation technology entrepreneurs aimed at supporting initiatives that help solve the biggest challenges in Estonian education. During 2019-2021, the Fund supported 10-15 initiatives with a million euros, focusing on increasing the number of next-generation teachers, raising the quality of school management, reducing drop-out rates, and increasing the acquisition of natural and exact sciences skills combined with creativity and teamwork. The idea for the Education Fund came from Taavet Hinrikus from Wise and Martin Villig from Bolt. Pipedrive has been one of the largest supporters of the fund for several years now.
