Company history

The idea of creating SITCO formed in late 2020 in the minds of Jiří Živnůstka, Chairman of the Board of SUDOP CIT, Alana Ilczyszyn, SITCO’s current managing equity partner, and the platform’s second equity partner, Jiří Beran. This trio was driven by the desire to do things differently, employing new and original approaches.

The platform itself was launched in the latter part of 2021 when SUDOP CIT became its founding investor. The SUDOP CIT group has invested in the IT sector since 2018. Its ambition is to create one of the biggest IT groups in the Czech Republic. SITCO’s managing equity partner is Alan Ilczyszyn.
