Today, in Ukraine there are about 190,000 developers, and this number is constantly growing. Universities train specialists in various IT fields and the rapidly developing industry allows them to gain wide practical experience in the profession. That makes them incredibly valuable for R&D systems

The Ukrainian IT market has gone through many stages of “evolution”, and finally, today, when they talk about the high-tech potential of Ukraine, they mean not only outsourcing. Our “intellectual asset” is a real treasure for foreign IT companies. The "brain drain" trend to the West was replaced by an interest in opening their own offices. Today, foreign developers of high-tech products are ready to open research centers (R&D) directly in Ukraine.

Ukrainians have learned to create, promote and sell IT products on global markets. We are interested not only in creating a product but also in its active development. As a result, more and more Ukrainian developers want to be a part of their work. This is what gives rise to the development of software development centers - R&D offices.

R&D centers have a significant impact on the labor market in the country. When we help international IT corporations to open their offices in Ukraine, we simultaneously encourage them to equip a complete infrastructure. And this is a good investment in the country as a whole.
