The IT Ukraine Association actively develops an international track and provides assistance to Ukrainian companies to scale their business and attract new customers in foreign markets.
In September 2020, with the support of the USAID Competitive Economy Program (CEP) the Association launched the IT Export Alliance - an international project, which is implemented under the Union brand, and facilitates entering export markets for Ukrainian IT companies. During this period, within trade missions to Germany, Norway and Finland it united 15 small and medium-sized Ukrainian technology companies, as well as more than a dozen national and international partners.
