🔸️As stated by Thomas Sillesen, Director LLC “Akkerman Solutions Ukraine”, it is natural for Akkerman Solutions to participate and support the Hackathon. 🔸️He says: “As a company we believe in supporting events and initiatives that makes the Ukraine software and engineering stronger. It is naturally of interest to our company, as it up-qualifies some of the software and engineering specialists we might need in the future. It will naturally also be of benefit to our competitors, but competition is healthy in business, and make this area of competences more interesting for both job seekers and companies. As such, it makes the software industry of Ukraine growing. And we all need that, Ukraine needs that, and our customers need that. So it is a true win-win for everyone involved. Over the years we supported several education projects, most noticeably a project running for several years in the university of Severodonetsk, where we, with the help of DAI/USAID from USA taught first teachers and later pupils in the specific software used by Akkerman Solutions when we help our customers, and used by most western companies. As such we helped making a future working for or with western companies attractive to the students, and we even went further and was in the process of buying an office in Rubizhne, next to Severodonetsk, when sadly the full-scale invasion started. Now we look to expand our business with office in Mykolaiv”.
We express our huge thanks to the Akkerman company for supporting this important event!
