NAME: Stanislav Sochynskyi
COUNTRY: Ukraine
PROGRAMME: Innovation and Technology management

Why did you choose to study this programme?

I did my first degree in Computer Science but throughout the studies, I discovered that I am engrossed in applying data science for real-life problems. Specifically, I am keen on Natural Language Processing (do not mix up with Neuro-Linguistic programming – they have nothing in common!).

I simply followed my heart and decided to enhance my entrepreneurship capabilities and advance my hard skills.

The Innovation and Technology management program was a perfect fit as it focuses on both tech and business part within. Exactly what I was looking for.

Why Estonia?

That is an adventures story! In 2016 I was volunteering at Web Summit in Lisbon, Portugal. At venues, I met StartupEstonia stand.

I think I have spent there about 2-3 hours talking about Estonians. I fell in love with how the country promotes itself as a startup land with outstanding e-government. and take steps to stay competitive in the future.

In a year, I am very thankful to me from the past for clicking the “Submit” button on the 15th of March. The start-up environment is only a little piece of a tasty pie of what you can discover in Estonia! Nature, traditions, cultural life. Can you imagine the open-air orchestra concert for everyone?
