Startup investors and key contributors to Ukraine's tech ecosystem in 2019

This initiative is designed to help new startups, tech entrepreneurs, venture capital investors, journalists, local corporate innovation leaders and foreign partners to understand the major players of innovation market of Ukraine and represent Ukrainian innovation globally.

Changes from the previous catalog:
+1 new members (133 in total)
 -67 removed from the list


Notes and changes:

  1. New criteria: This list only includes the people who have been active at Ukrainian innovation ecosystem within the last 18 months.
  2. Change: Investment ticket size in Ukraine is pretty flexible among investors, but the investment stage rarely varies. So I decided to divide investors only into 2 categories (early-stage and other).
  3. Not all people from this list are currently living in Ukraine but there is a big chance of cooperation, mentorship or investment opportunity if you are an Ukrainian person who decide to connect with them.
  4. This catalog is published as my personal market research and some information could be subjective. Please don't hate but offer changes. Let's keep up the most useful startup ecosystem overview for Kyiv and Ukraine for current and new players.
  5. Pro Tip: To sort table by a few columns at the same time, please, hold "Shift" button when clicking the column header.

If you have more information to share – please send it to my email km@center42.tech. If you support the idea of this research and know somebody who can be interested in this material – please share the link – it's the best way to help.
