On May 20, Beetroot AB acquired Oldmin Team, an IT company based in Zhytomyr (Ukraine). This acquisition will strengthen Beetroot’s ability to deliver complex solutions in modern web technologies and blockchain.  

Oldmin Team, was founded in 2015 by Igor Bolshakov. Today, has a team of 15 seasoned professionals and develops IT solutions to clients worldwide, with a specialization in blockchain technology.

We had considered integrating with a larger IT company for some time when we came across Beetroot and Beetroot Academy. It quickly became obvious that Beetroot was exactly the kind of company with which such an integration would work. A lot of cultural factors clicked. I really believe that joining the Beetroot family will enable us to deliver even more cool, high-quality solutions to clients in the future.

The Company was already already one of Beetroot Academy’s local partners in Zhytomyr and is an active player and organizer in the local IT industry. 

Adding Oldmin’s skilled core team to our line-up is the right thing to do for many reasons—not only to expand our IT solution delivery capacity. Their technology stack and experience match our needs, their team culture is great, and an expansion in Zhytomyr aligns with Beetroot’s strategy of growing in mid-sized cities. We will no doubt find many new synergies as an ecosystem, creating impact by combining Oldmin’s expertise with Beetroot Academy’s IT education in Zhytomyr.

“We have now gained important experience from integrating a few, new companies into the Beetroot ecosystem. We feel strong, despite Covid-19, and our sights are set on more sustainable growth.”
