"Developed in Ukraine": Parimatch Tech co-CEO Web Summit 2021 Speech
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

After the pandemic-related switch to an online-only format last year, Web Summit 2021 returned to Lisbon and welcomed guests from across the world once again. For the first time ever, Ukraine hosted a pavilion at the world’s largest digital tech conference as the synergy of government institutions and businesses.

Parimatch Tech, an international product company that provides tech and marketing solutions in the entertainment and betting industry, was honoured to represent Ukraine as the country’s leading IT market player. Maksym Liashko, Parimatch Tech’s co-CEO, held a panel discussion and shared his thoughts about Ukraine’s promising future in tech.

“The phrase “Made in China” is not surprising to anyone nowadays, considering the impressive global expansion of the Chinese market, touching almost every industry. In a few years, the phrase “Developed in Ukraine” will become as widespread. And it won’t be surprising for anyone working in the IT industry, keeping in mind Ukraine’s explosive growth in terms of startups, “unicorns”, and hundreds of thousands of absolutely incredible talented developers, project managers, creators emerging.” — Maksym started.

Parimatch Tech, operating in 14 countries, was born in Ukraine, continues to grow and develop in Ukraine, and plans to continue its global expansion from Ukraine. The company’s largest product is one of the most popular and advanced betting platforms in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, and as of today, the platform holds over 1400 transactions per minute, Maksym pointed out. As the company successfully operating in multiple countries, Parimatch Tech believe that Ukraine is one of the best places to develop and run a global IT business.

“Despite Parimatch Tech’s global presence, the company’s largest R&D office is based in Ukraine’s capital, Kyiv. Why? The professional environment, high standards of tech education, and adaptive business approaches make Ukraine one of the best places to develop business globally. Ukraine is a unique country where working and living is equally pleasant.”

Ukraine becomes more and more visible on the world’s map each year, and it’s booming IT sector is one of the reasons, Maksym believes. It is easy to relocate in Ukraine, and it is easy to do business, and the reason behind this is Ukrainians’ high professional adaptability — it’s as easy for us to work with locals as it is to host foreigners.

“It’s easy to work from Ukraine and establish global partnerships. Being a Ukrainian company, Parimatch Tech has managed to sign contracts with some of the biggest global sports companies, including Juventus FC, Leicester FC, Everton FC, Chelsea FC, and UFC. So, it’s only a matter of time till “Developed in Ukraine” becomes another benchmark in the IT industry.” — Maksym Liashko concluded.

 

Ukrainian IT sector overview

It is hard not to notice how thriving the Ukrainian IT sector is: its yearly growth is five times faster (25%) than the global average (4-6%), and there seems to be no sign of slowing down in the future. Here are some numbers to back it up:

There are over 5,000 IT companies operating in Ukraine.

A GAME OF TWO SCARVES: JAMIE REDKNAPP INVESTIGATES THE TRAGEDY OF HALF-AND-HALF SCARVES IN FOOTBALL

A GAME OF TWO SCARVES: JAMIE REDKNAPP INVESTIGATES THE TRAGEDY OF HALF-AND-HALF SCARVES IN FOOTBALL
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

New Paddy Power series sees Redknapp chance his arm as documentary maker to learn about the origins of one of the worst things to happen to football

Footballer-turned-pundit, Jamie Redknapp, is now stepping into the world of hard-hitting documentaries to tackle one of the biggest issues in the modern-day game…the half-and-half scarf.

Paddy Power’s Jamie Redknapp Investigates is a new series that will see the former Liverpool and Spurs legend get to the bottom of the things that really annoy football fans about the modern game.

Episode one sees Redknapp get to the bottom of half-and-half scarves – the ghastly neckwear issue, described by fans he interviews as “Filth”, “Foul” and “So sh*t”.

In the first of a three part series – with episodes two and three released over the fortnight – Redknapp reveals the industry is now worth “over half a billion pounds” and tracks down the inventor of the half-and-half scarf.

The inventor, Brian, explains that the inspiration behind joining two separate scarves together was his own divorce, after his wife cut everything he owned in half.

Sewing his Arsenal and Holland neckwear together, Brian created the world’s first half-and-half scarf – which rather unfortunately reads “Arse land”.

But, at what cost? “Half-and-half scarves have a very short shelf life,” says Redknapp’s next interviewee – environmental activist, Lisa.

Discarded items can unfortunately find their way into nature, with Lisa reporting sightings of a baboon wearing a scarf featuring Tony Pulis at one end Sean Dyche at the other. Although Lisa does say that there aren’t health implications for the animals, they “just look really stupid”.

Redknapp then returns to see Brian once more as he’s told there’s a gift waiting for him. And, after showing off his diversified portfolio (including Manchester United and Liverpool half-and-half facemasks), the inventor gives the former England international his present.

Unfortunately, the Redknapp edition scarf features Harry at one end but the wrong Jamie at the other – Jamie Vardy.

Episode two of Paddy Power’s Jamie Redknapp Investigates, released next Friday, will see Jamie taking on Twitter trolls.

Spokesman Paddy Power said: “Forget diving, dodgy VAR calls and people leaving early – half-and-half scarves are the biggest disgrace in football right now. So, we put our best man on the case to investigate and uncover the ugly truth about this scourge of modern football that we know annoys all proper football fans across the country.

“Because there are some things that just don’t look right together, like pasta and ketchup or Tottenham and trophies.”

The full video can be viewed on Paddy Power’s YouTube and Twitter  pages.
