Kharkiv (Kharkov), Ukraine due-diligence visit

May 6, 2011

Just got back from Kharkiv (Kharkov) in the Ukraine where I was doing due-diligence on a company. We had to fly via Vienna as no direct flights to Kharkiv. On the way back we were delayed 3 hours in Vienna. That’s 2 out of 2 flights to Ukraine where I have experienced issues on the return journey!

We were given a warm welcome by our hosts. The company in questions trades via eLance. Their offices probably aren’t what you would expect and certainly not intended to receive customer visits!

Putting the appearance of their offices to one side (the insides were no better either) they seemed to have a competent bunch of people.
