Promprylad.Renovation and Swedish IT-company Beetroot have formed a partnership
Beetroot IT company will become one of the Promprylad.Renovation residents and will promote the development of the innovation center’s ecosystem.
«Wherever Beetroot enters a market, the core of our mission is to contribute to growing a healthy and impactful Ecosystem. When we entered Ivano Frankivsk with Beetroot Academy in 2017 Promprylad was at an early stage, just like us, but we immediately felt that we are on a similar route with shared values and an extremely aligned mission. We kept in close contact over the years. In 2020, Beetroot Academy went into a partnership for developing education for new professions together with Promprylad, and we are now more than excited to also move in with our Beetroot Tech crew. It feels like home, and together with Promprylad and other players we can make a real difference for the future of Ivano Frankivsk, actually already today», says Andreas Flodström, founder and CEO of Beetroot.
‘We have been friends with Beetroot for a long time. Once we met the founders of the company, we immediately felt that we were on the same page. We appreciate the Swedish roots of the company as well as the valuable openness to interaction and active social position,’ commented Yuriy Fylyuk, CEO of Promprylad.Renovation.
«We are already working with Beetroot Academy. And we are preparing the School of New Jobs at Promprylad.Renovation together. We are glad that Beetroot will be with us now, and that one of the company’s largest offices will operate in the Promprylad ecosystem».
Beetroot ecosystem includes not only the IT business of the same name, but also the Beetroot Academy and the Beetroot Hub. The Academy was the first to appear in Ivano-Frankivsk: it offered local students professional training in 2017. By now Beetroot Academy has trained more than 300 specialists in various fields.
In 2018, Beetroot IT company has already begun working with Frankivsk specialists and involving them in international projects. Beetroot’s local team of developers, designers and other specialists currently includes 60 consultants. By the end of 2022, the company plans to attract about 100 more specialists from Ivano-Frankivsk to IT projects and open its own office in Promprylad.Renovation, which was made possible by signing a partnership agreement. IT specialists will be housed in the building on Andrii Melnyk Street.
Beetroot is a cozy Swedish-Ukrainian IT business with 600+ specialists in nine cities of Ukraine and Sweden involved in turnkey development and creating dedicated teams for customers from around the world. It was founded in 2012 as a diploma project by two graduates of Chalmers University of Technology and young entrepreneurs Andreas Flodström and Gustav Henman.
