UKAD at the Finnish-Ukrainian Tech Day: A recap of the conference in Espoo

On May 30th, our team from UKAD had the pleasure of attending the Finnish-Ukrainian Tech Day in Espoo, Finland. The event brought together leaders and innovators from the tech industries of Finland and Ukraine. The aim was to foster collaboration and share insights on AI, software development, and growing businesses. Advicera OY organized the conference in partnership with the City of Espoo. It was an excellent chance to expand our network, gain new perspectives, and find new paths for innovation.

What's Finnish-Ukrainian Tech Day all about?

The Finnish-Ukrainian Technology Day is a conference open to small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) and startups. And most importantly, all those seeking to implement artificial intelligence in their business processes. This is not surprising, as the main focus of the conference was on artificial intelligence, software development, startups nurturing, and scaling. By attending this conference, the participants would have the opportunity to significantly save on R&D costs by cooperating with Ukrainian software developers in the long term. In addition, the conference provides an opportunity to establish valuable business connections for further cooperation and learn best practices in digitalization and software development.

UKAD's moment in the spotlight

One of the most anticipated sessions was the panel discussion on "EdTech and E-learning: Combining the Best from Finland and Ukraine," where our COO, Denys Denysenko, took center stage. Denys shared UKAD's experiences and best practices for developing eLearning platforms. He also gave an example of a challenging and exciting project in our portfolio, GoalEnvision. This project for business people educates them on how to set targets and benchmarks and align them with company vision, taking into account market specifics, sales, operations, HR, and finance. Within the platform, business owners effectively learn by doing. Our example, not only this one, demonstrates the strong technical base developers possess in Ukraine. And how this knowledge can be applied to various projects.
