The CzechInvest agency, in cooperation with the Association for Foreign Investment – AFI, announced the results of the 14th year of its competition “Investor and Business Property of the Year” at its mid-June gala evening. Y Soft was awarded with one of the highest awards and can pride itself with the title “Investor of the Year” in the category IT and shared services.

CzechInvest uses its “Investor of the Year” competition traditionally to point out those major investment projects that raise the Czech Republic’s prestige and competitiveness in the international arena.

Decided not only on the amount of investment, but also on the quality of new jobs

As the Minister of Industry and Trade, Jan Mládek, said, the competition increases year by year: "It is encouraging that investors’ interest in the Czech Republic is growing. Because of this, the jury could choose from really interesting projects this year. Among the investors appearing are names known all over the world."

The expert jury mainly assesses the following three criteria: the amount of investment, newly created jobs, benefits for the region. The award goes to the company whose involvement is crucial in the investment in new jobs, especially in the development of skilled disciplines.

Y Soft plans to invest 70 million into further development

Y Soft will cooperate with CzechInvest on partial grant projects over the long-term. As part of the strategic development of the project, we plan to invest CZK 70.3 million and create 40 new jobs directly at our Brno headquarters. These will mostly be highly-skilled research and development positions. Y Soft’s vision is to become a Czech global company. Our management is very proud of the fact that we recruit skilled workers (either in development or production) directly in our home, the Czech Republic.
