IT experts from Odessa in raising Unicorns from startups
Do IT Global Innovative Solutions (DIGIS) is an IT company with its development office in Odessa, but focused on the Western markets. DIGIS is committed to provide its clients not just with software but also with solutions, which improves the clients’ business performance.
In 2014, a 19-year-old student Nikita Nagatkin, together with his brother Alexey (today's CEO of the company) and some friends, launched the Do it IT company. The boys from Odessa had 10 thousand UAH: this was enough to rent an office, furniture and minimum wages.
The first job was offered by the neighbours in the office who were looking for contractors for their client. It was necessary to create an online store with complex functionality. The guys agreed to do the job for $ 10 thousand. And the client was not greedy and paid the double.
Over time, the company, which develops software for various fields, was renamed Digis. It has grown to 110 people and is continously recruiting.
Since its foundation, the team has done 250 projects for various clients, including Coca-Cola, Warner Bros., BlaBlaCar. One of the clients became a "unicorn", that is, the company was valued at more than $ 1 billion. The American research organisation CLUTCH included Digis in the top 1000 best outsourcing b2b companies in the IT field for two years in a row.
The opening of foreign offices strengthens the R&D potential of the entire IT sector in Ukraine. Therefore, the active dynamics of DIGIS in the EU market is a good marker of the growth of innovative sectors of the country's economy.
