“Bakcell sees great potential in young Azerbaijani software and hardware developers, and we are confident that they are able to generate ideas and create products and services, able to compete not only on the local market, but on the international arena as well. Being the leader in innovation, Bakcell is always ready to support the younger generation, by providing them with a proper guidance and creating conditions for their development and implementation of their bright ideas. As you all can see, our work is being effective and we’re proud to see so many successful projects, among the AppLab participants”, says Bakcell CEO Nikolai Beckers.
