How do you work through an invasion? I really can’t imagine trying to run a startup or code an app or make client calls while you’re being bombed or shot at. However, that’s exactly what’s happening in the Ukrainian tech scene right now.
From my story at Forbes:
Ukrainian tech companies are struggling through the Russian invasion of their country, with some relocating staff, others providing whatever shelter they can in embattled cities, and most still trying to keep the lights on and the work going.
“Today, Kyiv has been attacked all day long,” says Oleksandr Kosovan, the founder and CEO of Mac software utilities maker MacPaw. “The war is here, and it’s real. Right now, we answer these questions under the sounds of sirens calling people to hide in the nearest bomb shelters.”
Most still can’t believe it’s happening.
