Melon Makes Strategic Investment in Frakton
For Melon, it’s an exciting venture with a remarkable Kosovo company and a vital step in the ambitious expansion into SEE region’s vibrant software development talent market. Simultaneously, Frakton finds the fitting international company to join forces and boost its already advancing business operations to the next level.
Following a few years of exceptional performance and growth, Melon generated good momentum to accelerate its expansion effort. The company’s acclaimed excellence in managing software services from development centres in North Macedonia and Bulgaria, grants its management sound confidence that they can realise beneficial investments in the wider SEE region. Melon is looking for software development teams that share its distinctly open, positive and growth-oriented organizational culture. Frakton effortlessly fits into the profile making the agreement a natural step forward.
“We are very excited to have Frakton join us in our journey and help Melon step up our growth in the region. Kosovo software ecosystem has been in our focus for more than two years now and we find its community full of like-minded young people. Frakton is the gravity centre we believe is key in helping Melon build our team further and help our partners and clients in their digital transformation initiatives.”
– Krum Hadjigeorgiev, CEO of Melon AD
Frakton is an established player on Kosovo’s software development market with a strong reputation both as an employer and a service provider for major international companies.

Organic fit to Melon’s values and vision resulted in a smooth process with a predetermined positive outcome.
“We have been at a tremendous growing pace, while on a lookout for a partner that shares the same culture and values we do. I believe Melon is the partner that will propel our growth to markets and services we wanted to reach for years. This will lead to achieving our goal of becoming one of the biggest tech companies in Kosovo and also the best workplace for people to be part of”
