According to DOU, the percentage of women in Ukrainian IT is actively growing and now amounts to 25%. Five years ago this figure was just over 14%. We are moving in the right direction, but we still need support. It is important that as many women as possible could learn about such programs.

CONCORDBANK has been supporting startups and IT companies for several years now.

CONCORDBANK is a complete fintech ecosystem with its own processing and IT team. For 3 years in a row, we were the main partners of the ITEM conference. Last fall, we held a teleconference with Google and Facebook employees. This time, we decided to support the initiative of the Ukrainian Hub and granted the US trip for the winners from the fintech industry
