Association of Startups of Ukraine

We create space for support and development from idea to entry into international markets. We bring together all stakeholders in the field of innovation and help them interact

Ukrainian Association of Startups was created to develop the ecosystem of promoting innovation, entrepreneurship and the economy of Ukraine as a whole. The main goal of the Association is to help startups get financing and build an effective strategy for entering the market or scaling a business.


Startups can participate in a joint financing fund, which will increase the amount of investment.
We also provide assistance in finding grants and investments, advise on the preparation of a package of documentation for receiving grants and all types of investments.


Another aspect of development for startups is quality networking and mutual assistance.
The atmosphere of exchange of experience among the members of the Association motivates and excludes the possibility of making standard mistakes at the beginning of establishing a business.


Members of the Association can hold sessions with well-known world-class mentors, participate in workshops, training programs that will bring startups to a new level of growth.

Marketing of Startups

Members of the Association get their own Internet page on the Association’s website, where they can present and visualize their project, as well as receive advice on the positioning and marketing of their products

We are a non-profit organization and direct all received funding to support these cases, cooperate with experts and support all actions and tools, ensuring full transparency and control over the use of funds.
