Any decision that makes our life more convenient, mobile, safer and simply better, there is a special kind of people behind them — Innovative. Innovative solutions presuppose a special type of behavior, habits, way of thinking, and, consequently, a favorable atmosphere in order to freely and fearlessly create new meanings. We spoke with Vladislav Kopanko, Delivery & Operations at Innovecs, and learned his vision of what it means to be Innovative.

What qualities do Innovative people have?

I believe that these people are most open to possible changes and often welcome them. They are very charismatic, decisive, and persistent.

What’s the hardest part about being Innovative?

The most difficult thing is the fear of being misunderstood, unrecognized, and rejected. It seems to me that this is the main stumbling block for most people. After all, it is much easier to do clear, simple things that do not entail any significant changes. Another thing is to “push through” your ideas, assert them, and convey something new.

What helps you stay Innovative?

I believe that I am a rather self-critical person. I’m not sure if I’m Innovative enough. At least I have room to grow and develop. My life path and experience, the high fear threshold of communicating something new and broadcasting what others do not talk about, help me a lot.

Why is it so cool to be Innovative?

All people in one way or another initially possess the Innovative skill. From an early age, all children are explorers who create their own world, discover unfamiliar facets in it. They are innovative in nature because they are free to dream, imagine, and little can stop them. Over time, we grow up and lose this ability due to doubts, shame, fears. In my opinion, it is extremely important to keep the child in yourself and continue to dream.

What does it take to be Innovative?

I think that Innovative people are self-confident, open-minded, attractive, and in many ways cynical. These qualities help them stay on the crest of the wave, constantly raise the bar, bring fresh ideas to the world and not walk the beaten path.

Unity As a Weapon Against Evil: How Volunteering Helps Resist Russia’s Enemy Attack
Innovecs is a global company, we have two large offices in Ukraine located in Kyiv and Mykolayiv. On February 24, Ukrainians woke up to a new reality — a hostile Russian invasion shattered the plans and quiet lives of 45 million people. Instead of getting confused, the Ukrainians united in the name of victory. President Zelenskiy is now compared to King David of Israel, who skillfully dealt with the huge and ugly Goliath. A small country on a map is fighting a huge Russian army. National collective responsibility has been a powerful blow in response to Russia’s legend of a weak and divided Ukraine. Here everyone is either a soldier or a volunteer. Each of us has our own battlefront. Someone hospitably opens the door to migrants, makes dumplings for soldiers in the defense, someone donates to the army, and seeks options to buy bulletproof vests and medical kits for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Someone performs DDoS attacks on Russian sites and is waging an active war on the information front. Some advise and provide psychological assistance, some treat and organize humanitarian convoys free of charge. Innovecs, like hundreds of others, has joined the financial support of the army. We also organized additional fundraising for each team member who wanted to donate money to support the army. Of course, Innovecsers help not only with funding, but also volunteer. Today we will share some stories of our team members who chose their “battlefront” during the war with Russia.
