#SUPPORT_IT_UKRAINE: Kyiv IT Cluster launched a pro-bono B2B matchmaking platform to promote Ukraine IT Companies globally
WIN WIN UA is a trusted B2B matchmaking platform created by Ukrainian IT enthusiasts supported by Kyiv IT Cluster to accelerate global lead generation campaigns for IT companies from Ukraine to make a profound impact on the economy of the country.
The IT sector is basically the only industry in Ukraine that’s still up and running and garnering foreign revenue for the country. Ukraine IT companies unite to support the industry via deep dive into the global business community.
Due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine on Feb 24th, a number of international software firms are switching from Russian IT service providers to Ukrainian alternatives. The huge pool of talent coupled with the current global wave of solidarity makes for a perfect match on the road to success. Here you can find your next trusted tech partner. WIN WIN UA calls for chambers of commerce, professional business associations, vendors, and IT companies around the world to join the platform via the website https://winwinua.com/
Once the war is over, we will make Ukraine a tech paradise that’ll become a genuine engine of growth for the whole country.
Canada Ukraine Chamber of Commerce is one of the project partners and will be happy to facilitate contacts and help establish cooperation between Canadian interested parties and selected WIN WIN UA participants.

N-iX, a leading software development provider, announced today that it has achieved Amazon Web Services Advanced Consulting Partner status in the AWS Partner Network (APN). It is the second-highest tier for AWS Consulting Partners, and N-iX has become one of only 9 Ukraine-based companies that obtained this accreditation. Also, out of over 9,000 AWS partners worldwide, only 13% have been able to receive the Advanced or Premier Consulting tier.
“N-iX partnered with AWS early in 2020 and has since solidified its position in AWS Partner Network, moving up several tiers in just one year. During this time, we have invested a lot into presenting our work to AWS, validating the quality of services, providing training, and motivating our engineers to get certified. Having all this recognized by AWS and reaching the important milestone of Advanced Tier demonstrates our ongoing commitment to delivering business value and driving customer success together with AWS,” comments Orest Furhala, Head of Partnerships at N-iX.
To reach the AWS Advanced Consulting Partner status, companies have to undergo a rigorous approval process and demonstrate extensive technological expertise, proven customer success within the AWS ecosystem as well as training and certification of the company’s specialists. This accreditation allows N-iX to work more closely with AWS, ensuring the company continues to develop its expertise and deliver high-quality AWS solutions.
“N-iX is honoured to be recognized by AWS as an Advanced Consulting Partner,” said Nazariy Zhovtanetskyy, Chief Strategy Officer at N-iX. “This achievement reflects the experience and value our experts bring for each of our customers. A lot of our partners, including Gogo, Currencycloud, Lebara, TuneIn, and others have already enjoyed the benefits of AWS, such as reduced costs, increased security, better flexibility, faster time to market, to name a few. So, we are determined to grow further our cloud expertise to help our clients drive maximum value from their cloud investments.”
More than 15 ICT companies from Ukraine available for b2b meetings, looking to forge potential partnerships with Canadian companies
OTTAWA, Ontario, Canada / KYIV, Ukraine – May 18, 2017–Branham Group, together with the Canada-Ukraine Trade and Investment Support (CUTIS) Project, is bringing more than 15 Ukrainian ICT companies to Toronto and setting up introductory one-on-one meetings with Canadian companies interested in doing business with them.
Ukraine’s goal is to tell the world that it is open for business and has a lot offer, according to Wayne Gudbranson, Branham Group CEO.
“I have personally seen this in the tech area. In fact, we are very excited about connecting the Branham300 ecosystem of leading companies with a very talented group of Ukrainian ICT companies visiting Canada,” Gudbranson said.
“Canada and Ukraine already have a close relationship. The final signing of the Canada-Ukraine Free Trade Agreement (CUFTA), which is imminent, will accelerate a lot of business opportunities between our respective countries.”
The event will provide a unique chance for Canadian companies interesting in off-shoring and finding partnering opportunities to have one-on-one B2B meetings and speak with many ICT executives from Ukraine who are here because they are interested and ready to work more closely with Canada, said Gail Balfour, Senior Research Analyst at Branham Group.
“Whenever I speak with Canadian ICT companies, both start-ups and ones that have been around for years, one thing that often comes up is their desire to find opportunities to do more business internationally. This event will provide a lot of potential for doing just that because we can introduce these Canadian company leaders to several like-minded executives from Ukraine, all in one room, and all with similar business goals and objectives.”
The Ukraine B2B meetings with Canadian companies will take place between May 29 and May 31, 2017 at the Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce building in Toronto. Shortly after, the Branham300 launch event takes place May 31, also in Toronto, where the Top 250 ICT companies in Canada will be announced. Key speakers at the invitation-only Branham300 event will include Nataliya Mykolska, Deputy Minister – Trade Representative of Ukraine.
