Our company has a sufficient understanding of the Cluster’s work and professionalism of its team. We saw that the Cluster’s project activity is aimed at socially important industries – education, law, infrastructure. Ciklum and Lviv IT Cluster share common values – this was also an important criterion for us. That’s why we decided to join the organization. We believe that by our joint efforts we can contribute to making IT-industry in Ukraine an engine for economy and a magnet for highly-skilled professionals”.
