Some of the brightest Ukrainian IT companies are in London to talk business!


It's not exactly business speed dating! However, ten entrepreneurial IT companies from across Ukraine are visiting London 28th and 29th April on a focused 2-day Trade Mission, aiming to meet like-minded UK companies for mutual business benefit. Directors and senior managers of these firms are ready for dialogue on a range of commercial options including: an investment stake in their business, leveraging their professional outsourced IT services at good rates, forming value added reseller (VAR) relationships or engaging their expertise and local presence to access Eastern European and Russian markets. 


Make an appointment to meet on 28th and 29th April through the UK Trade Mission coordinator! You may be in London anyway since the Internet World Show is on at Earls Court. It will be possible to have an informal discussion at this event or arrange a separate meeting at premises available to the Trade Mission in nearby Notting Hill. You may also get to know them better at a early evening drinks reception on 28th April. All discussions are in English.   


With solid track records in the Ukraine, these experienced IT companies provide a range of professional services and solutions including outsourced software and web development, software testing and telephony. Their Mission results from an EU Project based in Ukraine – a county with a high reputation for skilled software engineers and an excellent near-shore location for the UK. A recent KPMG advisory report highlighted the Ukrainian city of Lviv as one of the global 'locations to watch' in 2009 for outsourced IT services. 


Company profiles are available for download at – follow the link to the 'Ukrainian Business and Investment Opportunity Database'. Company size, customer base, specialist skills, interests in investment and partnering opportunities are included in these detailed profiles. 


So, as they say in the best-informed of match-making circles, “Your our presence is eagerly awaited” to open business dialogue on great opportunities to leverage your business. Please contact the IT Trade Mission's UK coordinator to book meetings or request further information.

The European Union numbers 27 Member States: 27 different nations determined to shape their future closely together. Over a period of enlargement of 50 years, they have, together, built a zone of peace, stability, progress and solidarity. The European Union is a model for overcoming conflict and promoting reconciliation through close co-operation to achieve common goals, while respecting national sovereignty and territorial integrity. But the EU is not focused on itself: its ambition is to share its achievements and its values with countries and peoples beyond its borders.

The European Commission is the EU’s executive body.
