Our city ranks 6th in Ukraine in the number of IT specialists and is closer to Odesa and the Dnipro and ahead of several larger cities, such as Zaporizhzhia, Mykolaiv, Mariupol, Kryvyi Rih.

Trade IT VN missions

Our Association promotes the local IT industry not only at the All-Ukrainian but also at the international level. In 2019, before the start of quarantine, we visited 4 powerful technology hubs at the invitation of foreign partners.

- With the help of Advantage Austria and the Embassy of Ukraine in Austria, we arrived in Vienna and Graz.

- Later we were invited by OurCrowd Israel, thanks to which we represented us in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, Israel.

- As a result of the financial support of the Embassy of Poland in Ukraine and Vinnytsia Regional State Administration, we visited partners from Warsaw and Gdansk.

- At the invitation of IT Ukraine with the help of the Export Promotion Office, we visited the developed city of Oslo in Norway.

Missions to South Africa led by the Minister of Economy of Ukraine and a second visit to Austria were planned for 2020, but the situation with the spread of the SARS-COV-2 virus and quarantine restrictions forced to postpone these missions until 2022.

IT VN in School

Every year, members of the IT Association visit 40 Vinnytsia secondary schools, where they talk about the IT industry of our city for students in grades 8-11. This project aims to conduct career guidance work with young people, to interest students in learning the exact sciences and English. After all, IT is an industry that has a large demand for staff and provides opportunities for career growth and the self-development of young talents. Unfortunately, due to quarantine, this project had to be interrupted, but we always come back with new strength!

Technological Future of Vinnytsia

In addition to the development of the Ukrainian IT community, the activities of the Vinnytsia Association are aimed at educating future competitive staff in the industry. That is why for students of 8-9 grades in cooperation with "Podolsk Scientific and Technical Lyceum for Gifted Youth" and Vinnytsia Regional State Administration we are launching a two-year educational program where students will learn the basics of robotics, programming, and innovative entrepreneurship.

The main goal of the "Technological Future of Vinnytsia" is to turn our region into a real innovation hub of Ukraine, in which local youth successfully create startups, implemented in the local IT market. More about the program - read on the page

Vinnytsia IT Park

Dmytro Sofyna, the CEO of our Association and co-founder and author of the Smart IT City concept, in early 2019 facilitated the implementation of a project to reconstruct the former “Vinnychanka” factory into the first IT Park in Central Ukraine.

 

This place provides a modern ecosystem of office, commercial and residential spaces of a new level of quality. Thus, in one place more than 21500m2, it is planned to gather the largest Vinnytsia IT companies, schools, freelancers and combine it all with commerce for the needs of residents of the complex (restaurants, cafes, terraces, gym, apartments, recreation areas, etc.)
