Why should partners choose you for cooperation?: 

Cluster is a geographical proximate group of interconnected companies and associated institutions in a particular field, linked by commonalities and externalities. Our cluster indeed meets this definition. It is located on a certain geographic area (Kyiv region, capital of Ukraine), and is uniting companies, associations, universities and public institutions, who are working in or with ICT sector. Most of these companies are or want to become international and work on external markets.
