Over the past 9 years, Lviv IT Cluster has grown from several companies into a robust and influential business community in Ukraine, which has implemented numerous successful projects that are changing our city and country.
The activities of Lviv IT Cluster are aimed at strengthening the tech industry position at the local and state levels, the development of Ukrainian tech education, infrastructure, and the promotion of Lviv as a city where advanced technologies are developing.

We strive not only to develop the tech industry in Lviv but also to help Ukraine become a tech country,” highlights Ivan Babichuk, Chairman of the Supervisory Board at Lviv IT Cluster.
Numerous projects implemented by Lviv IT Cluster would not be possible without the support and active participation of companies that are members of the association.

The association conducts surveys about the city’s tech market and its trends as part of the annual detailed IT Research initiative.
