CEO of the innovation center Promprylad.Renovation
“Promprylad.Renovation” is an innovation center in Ivano-Frankivsk, which is implemented based on the former industrial zone. “The main idea of the Promprylad project is to build an ecosystem where very different players come together. Here, businesses, public organizations, and representatives of local governments give birth to new ideas, projects, and partnerships, including joint efforts to create new potential for each of these stakeholders, the city and the region as a whole.” The core of the Promprylad team now consists of about 15 people: the operational and project development teams. For them and Yuriy, this is not the first crisis, so the attitude to quarantine conditions is quite calm. We had an adequate perception of quarantine. It is not the first crisis in my life, as with most team members. So we just concluded: Okay, let’s take the appropriate steps. It’s like a war situation when a soldier doesn’t think deeply – there is an order, and you have to execute it. There is an objective reality that permeates life, and you have to react accordingly. We have been taught by previous crises that we cannot procrastinate here. We must accept the new reality as quickly as possible and take appropriate steps. These steps were made.
