Razom IT is an economic development initiative that supports the growth of an engaged middle class by cultivating the tech start-up ecosystem in Ukraine.
Ukraine is a rising tech nation of 45 million people with 99% literacy rate and 100,000 IT professionals. Our goal is to fuel the tech start-up ecosystem in Ukraine and grow an engaged middle class in Ukraine. We believe that when entrepreneurs succeed, their ideas and contributions support the transformation of their country.
Monthly Speaker Series
We design monthly Razom IT events to amplify the voices of people from Ukraine in conversations in the US and to build a community of people in New York who are interested in the intersection of tech and Ukraine.
Don’t miss an event, subscribe to our Razom IT mailing list.
