May 20, 2020 — Stockholm — Beetroot AB acquires Zhytomyr-based IT company Oldmin Team, adding 15 seasoned IT professionals to its lineup. This addition particularly strengthens Beetroot’s ability to deliver complex solutions in modern web technologies and blockchain.
Oldmin Team was founded in 2015, delivering solutions within Python, and leading web frameworks such as Django, React, React Native and Angular, to clients world-wide. Aside from being one of Beetroot Academy’s local partners in Zhytomyr, the company has also been an active player and organizer in the local IT industry.
“We had considered integrating with a larger IT company for some time when we came across Beetroot and Beetroot Academy. It quickly became obvious that Beetroot was exactly the kind of company with which such an integration would work. A lot of cultural factors clicked. I really believe that joining the Beetroot family will enable us to deliver even more cool, high-quality solutions to clients in the future.”— says Igor Bolshakov, founder of Oldmin Team.
Andreas Flodström, co-founder and CEO of Beetroot and Beetroot Academy, comments “Adding Oldmin’s skilled core team to our line-up is the right thing to do for many reasons—not only to expand our IT solution delivery capacity. Their technology stack and experience match our needs, their team culture is great, and an expansion in Zhytomyr aligns with Beetroot’s strategy of growing in mid-sized cities. We will no doubt find many new synergies as an ecosystem, creating impact by combining Oldmin’s expertise with Beetroot Academy’s IT education in Zhytomyr.”
The addition of Oldmin Team follows a successful integration of Stockholm-based Aducera Consulting and Kremenchuk-based Onlinico in 2019, to which Andreas Flodström adds: “We have now gained important experience from integrating a few, new companies into the Beetroot ecosystem. We feel strong, despite Covid-19, and our sights are set on more sustainable growth.”
