Ukraine - Africa ICT Business Connect and Support Program

Public ICT Sector Support Program

International ICT Market Connect and Support

The purpose of this program is to support selected Ukrainian and selected African IT specialist companies in their efforts to internationalise business and services delivery and take advantage of favourable conditions and access to markets.

For Ukrainian companies we provide access to pre-qualified, internationally experienced IT services companies in Egypt, Ghana and Rwanda to fast-track multi-location services delivery and to gain immediate access to top-qualified IT talent.

We are convinced that in order to support Ukraine’s ICT sector and its competitiveness on the global market, Ukrainian IT companies must implement a future-focussed multi-location service delivery strategy that helps to gain a long-term competitive edge in terms of operating cost and immediate access to managed IT-talent without the need for investments in own subsidiaries in foreign countries.
