Industry association Lviv IT Cluster is announcing the ‘Lviv Tech Marketplace’ initiative, aiming to promote the IT industry in Western Ukraine and help small and mid-size IT companies enter global markets. The initiative enjoys the support of the USAID Competitive Economy Program in Ukraine.
This online platform will feature “the most up-to-date information on IT companies in Lviv and the region,” helping IT companies promote their services abroad.
“Moreover, it [will] propose a wide range of functionality for the Ukrainian tech-ecosystem promotion abroad and becomes a platform for the participation of Ukrainian IT companies in complex projects that require diverse specialists. We believe that the initiative will scale up outside of Lviv and help IT companies to compete globally,” commented Valeriy Dobrovolski, IT Sector Initiatives Lead at the USAID Competitive Economy Program in Ukraine.
A tender for the development of the project platform will be announced in the nearest future. Applicants will be evaluated “on the basis of the efficiency of the proposed approach, creative brief of the project, the company’s portfolio and experience in the creation and implementation of similar projects.” Priority will be given to companies members of Lviv IT Cluster. The winner will be announced in October.
As of 2019, there were 461 IT companies in Lviv, out of which 54.3% small and medium-size, according to IT Research 4.0 data cited by Lviv IT Cluster CEO Stepan Veselovskyi.
