Some of the first residents of the new legal space were the initiators of the Union, including the Lviv IT Cluster member companies: EPAM, SoftServe and Sigma Software.
The special legal and tax regime for the tech industry, Diia.City, was officially launched on February 8, 2022, and on February 17, an application for registration of the residents’ Union was submitted to ensure effective communication with the state, international and national partners and sustainable development of the space over the next 25 years.
Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine put the plans of the Union’s founding companies on hold. However, on August 18, 2023, the Public Union Diia.City officially registered. The organization’s board included representatives of the founding companies EPAM, SoftServe, Sigma Software, NIX, and AltexSoft.
The Lviv IT Cluster, the IT Ukraine Association, the EBA IT Committee, and the Kharkiv IT Cluster joined the Supervisory Board of the Union.
“Lviv IT Cluster is one of the largest and most effective industry associations of tech companies in Ukraine. We can hear the needs of Ukrainian tech companies of various sizes and directions to understand their challenges and difficulties. Based on this, we can formulate solutions and projects that positively affect the environment for the development of the tech industry in Ukraine.
