Managing Director Luxoft Ukraine
IT Ukraine has become an excellent platform for interaction with the government, society and companies
In the "distant" 2007, when Luxoft joined the "IT Ukraine" Association, Ukrainian IT industry was far from what it is today. At that time, there were only 17,000 specialists, and services we provided had brought us just $ 500 million in revenue. We were small, but very ambitious and promising, thus, acted on our own.
After 13 years, the situation has changed dramatically, as we’ve become a flourishing industry.The Ukrainian software engineering community has grown more than 11 times, and exports have increased tenfold!
We’ve learnt how to interact with the government, society and each other: to act as a united front in case of need, to implement comprehensive educational and social projects. IT Ukraine has become a great platform for this.
I’m proud of our many joint initiatives. For example, last year, thanks to the #AntiVirus project, the IT industry has helped Ukrainian doctors fight coronavirus with funds and equipment worth millions of hryvnias. I’m glad that the community is getting stronger and I believe that the Ukrainian IT industry has an even more interesting and successful future. Stronger together!
