At the General Meeting on July 12, 2017 the decision was made to expand the Supervisory Board to 9 members by the end of 2017.

Roman believes that if we create conditions for the member Companies to exchange experience and grow, the value of the Cluster from business perspectives will be even higher.
Roman has a close relationship with the youth city council and a number of organizations that actively interact with youth. Since IT is a very popular and promising direction, it makes sense to create a joint project with the Cluster and City Council to promote Kharkiv as the IT city.
