Google and Belarus’ Hi-Tech Park (HTP) have agreed to jointly advance the park’s resident companies.
More perks and bonuses!
The news was made public after HTP Director Vsevolod Yanchevsky met with Google’s Country Manager for New Markets in Central and Eastern Europe Goetz Trillhaas.
The parties discussed partnership in supporting and advancing product companies, as well as development of an ecosystem for startups in Belarus.
Google representatives also shared their experience in cooperation with other foreign techno parks and showed new marketing instruments for product companies.
These instruments are used to identify demands for services and goods for certain market types and help to search for markets outside the country.
The HTP director got the guests familiar with the new possibilities for foreign development centers due to Belarus’ revolutionary decree “Concerning the development of digital economy”.
Recall that Google acquired AIMatter company, which is also the resident of Belarus’ Hi-Tech Park, in August last year.
AIMatter is a developer of a photo editing app Fabby that allows users to play with selfies and backgrounds, which has gained popularity around the world.
Not so long ago another technology developed by Belarusian developers was implemented in YouTube.
HTP is an economic zone with a special tax and legal regime, contributing to the favorable and successful development of IT business.
The Park has been repeatedly referred to as a Belarusian analog of Silicon Valley in the USA.
