About this Event

To unlock further potential for disruption of business strategies, three CEOs of international tech companies meet at the "CEO Night" online event powered by Innovecs, a global software development company. The new world order gives opportunities to benefit from vanished borders, especially for those in tech.

Due to global lockdown, your company location matters no more. Cooperating with partners from emerging economy countries could be one of the options to react and respond to the current challenges.

Oleksandr Konotopskyi (Ajax, smart security systems), Dmitri Lisitski (Influ2, account-based marketing service), and Alex Lutskiy (Innovecs, software development) will discuss:

  • How can tech companies grow in the post-quarantine period?
  • Upgrade the business models to be agile and global
  • What are the new opportunities, and how to seize them?
  • Tips and tricks on finding new partners in emerging markets (by the case of Ukraine).

Like others, tech companies experience turbulence responding to unfolding events. Still, now it's time to distill lessons and navigate the way into the future. Join InnoHub’s "CEO Night" to extract opportunities and shifts in the emerging markets that three mature CEOs have experienced so far.

📅 June 3rd, 7:00 pm (EEST) / 12:00 pm (EDT)

📍 Online (a live stream link will be sent to your email)
