PYCOGROUP is a specialist
in the B.O.T model.


We bootstrap development centers
with our Build.Operate.Transfer model.

You already have a great product road map. How do you find the right talent that reflects your work culture, while accelerating your recruitment process and building your internal capacity? How do you retain full control over your intellectual property, now and forever? How do you create the future option of acquiring a flourishing subsidiary – staffed by a proven team that you’ve already vetted, in a dedicated office space that you chose from the start?

An Overseas Development Center using our Build-Operate-Transfer model could well be your answer. Under this model, you don’t outsource your core competencies. You invest in people and technology, so you can acquire the staff, office, equipment and operation if you wish to.

  • build


    We leverage our reliable pool of talent to set up your first team.

    Your core team consists of our trusted long-term staff.

    They work in a state-of-the-art dedicated office space based on your needs and budget.

    We set this up under a new legal entity, so it can align with your operational processes and company structure.

  • operate


    We scale your center by recruiting and onboarding talents who meet your expectations and fit your work culture. You have the freedom to vet and approve every hire.

    We manage the operation of your center so you’re free to focus on your main business activities or we can support a more independent approach if you prefer.

    You have a direct say on costs and processes at all times.

  • transfer


    At the end of the contract period, you can decide to acquire 100% ownership of a fully operational and autonomous development center.

    You benefit from owning and operating fully integrated teams which are already experienced in running the daily operations of your development center.

    We keep running your center if you choose. We only transfer once you’re ready, and satisfied that we meet your targets of quality and productivity.
