According TVR Belarus has once again drawn attention of the international IT community in the first month of this year, maintaining the image of Eastern Europe’s Silicon Valley.
A start-up with Belarusian roots asserted itself at CES in Las Vegas, and Belarusian mobile applications have topped the Android and iOS stores, previously becoming Belarus’ start-ups of the year. One of them is the travel planning app eightydays.me. The app’s team has already received proposals from investors and is planning to present the app at TechCrunch Disrupt in New York.
Mobile applications developed in Belarus are being used by over 900 million people from 160 countries. The Belarusian High-Tech Park comprises 160 companies employing 25,000 people. Belarus has become one of the world’s leaders in terms of exporting information technology services per capita, being ahead of the United States and Russia.
