TEKWILL project has significantly contributed to building Chisinau’s reputation as an IT-oriented focal point. In 2020, Chisinau was named the City of the Year in Southeast Europe for supporting the IT sector. Our capital won a award, ahead of cities such as Tbilisi and Sofia, at one of the most important events in field such like `CEE Business Services Summit and Awards` held in 2020`, Warsaw, Poland.

TEKWILL is built on the belief that to be competitive economically in the years to come, Moldovan startups and innovators must begin adopting and creating industry-disrupting technology today.
Therefore, this message was coded into our name; “Tek” – for technology and “will” – for our future. The organization regularly gathers local and international tech leaders to empower the development of Moldova’s startup ecosystem by facilitating results-oriented innovation and collaboration.
TEKWILL is created with the support of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Government of Sweden through Sida/Swedish International Development Agency in the framework of the project “Development of Moldova ICT Excellence Center” implemented by Moldovan Association of ICT Companies (ATIC) in partnership with Technical University of Moldova.
