Business incubator in Belarus' High-Tech Park by end of April 2015

There are plans to launch the business incubator of the Park of High Technologies before the end of April. It must become the biggest in the post-Soviet space. This was said on March 12 by director of Park Valery Tsepkalo. Construction and installation work has already completed and now furniture is being purchased.

According to Valery Tsepkalo, the opening a business incubator is one of the main objectives of the Park in 2015. It will also expand its activities.

This was made possible thanks to a decree signed by the head of state.

Valery Tsepkalo, Director of Administration of the High Technologies Park:
The decree came into force on 1 January 2015. Of course, some areas are very important. It opened the opportunity for the company to engage in IT consulting today, ie advising companies that want to implement information technologies in management. Another thing is testing - the so-called quality control of the programs developed by, for example, other developers. That is, it is also quite a large and serious type of business.    

Today the High Technology Park brings together 137 resident companies and 21,000 highly qualified professionals.

It remains export oriented as 90% of the total volume of its products goes to foreign markets.

And by the way, compared with the year 2014, the increase is 31%. Now software export per capita in Belarus is higher than in the US and India. Currently, the park's customers are companies from 56 countries. Top importers are the US, Russia and the United Kingdom. Korea, Japan and Singapore have recently become investors and customers.
