Barcelona 03 March 2022
Tech startups at MWC say NO to war. With the help of TalentFY and other companies in the startup sector, this social initiative was born that will allow managing job opportunities for professionals in the IT fieldwho have had to leave Ukraine because of the current situation.
According to ONU, the conflict in Ukraine leaves more than 520,000 refugees, a figure that is expected to continue increasing exponentially in the coming hours. According to data from the INE, the Ukrainian community in Spain becomes about 112,000 people, with which the country expects a massive influx of Ukrainian citizens. In this way, Spain will begin to work on processes to facilitate the procedures of foreigners in the face of this dramatic exodus.
Faced with this situation, TalentFY will work with national and international recruiters such as VanHack and also Ukrainians such as PSR Company, GlobRecs or DNA325 to help in the selection processes and in the relocation of professional profiles, together with the bilateral Chamber of Ukraine and Spain and also with Spanish public bodies to facilitate the documentation and contracting processes in Spain.
The companies offer their support to the people of Ukraine and are willing to connect with the talent of Ukraine through this initiative led by TalentFY.
Participants are also offering help in many ways: Psonríe joins the manifesto to offer psychology and emotional support sessions to new employees after overcoming the war climate in Ukraine. MOBs offers a donation of the benefits obtained in the following month to Hambrecero.es, NGO. GoodNews is donating all the profits made in its corners in coffee sales to the Ukrainian Red Cross. Others like Cuideo, Belvo, Columat, Proppos, SwaPay, Refruiting, Discoverfy.io, Method Logistics, Cleverea & MiCuento have joined the leadership of this initiative to repel the invasion and give confidence to the people of Ukraine.
The startup sector comes together from different fields to help the Ukrainian people, as TalentFY CEO Santi Molins says ‘In the face of this unfortunate situation, our sector is united so that just as day by day we give solutions in our markets, today we provide a grain of sand and support those who have had to give up everything and flee the war in Ukraine. ’
All the support of the Spanish Tech ecosystem is with you. We say unanimously: Stop the war NOW!
