The Ukrainian IT sector has performed remarkably since the start of the full-scale invasion in February of last year. It is the one industry to actually grow its export revenues during this time, thanks to the implementation of business continuity plans, timely relocation of teams and the diversification of development centres throughout Ukraine and abroad.
Incredibly Ukrainian companies have been launching and implementing new projects, services and products, paying much-needed taxes, expanding to new international markets and attracting new clients. Undoubtedly the IT industry will play a central role in Ukraine’s post-victory development.
The Ukrainian Tech Forum has been convened as a platform to bring together all the key participants and stakeholders in the Ukrainian tech and IT ecosystems with their international counterparts and the CIOs of major international companies for a timely discussion of the opportunities being created as Ukraine’s IT companies become further integrated into global markets.
Just some of the business-critical and key topics to be covered are:
Our team has been holding Ukrainian investment conferences for over 25 years and the leading Ukrainian tech and VC firms are regular speakers at our Ukrainian Investment Roadshow and sector-specific conferences. Just some of the recent speakers, sponsors and participants at our recent events include: UVCA, IT Ukraine Association, Intellias, Horizon Capital, N-iX, Flashpoint VC, ICU Ventures, Sigma Software, Softserve, SAP Ukraine, iTelligence, Intel Ukraine, Kyivstar, Wallet Factory, Cyklum, Vodafone Ukraine, Energame, Ukrainian Association of FinTech & Innovation Companies, TechoSystem.
