The blossoming Ukrainian technology sector has triggered the emergence of new companies that develop their products with the great ideas and high performance of its’ technological implementation. Having both, entrepreneurial and technical talents, Ukrainian tech developers implement amazing solutions for optimizing and improving lives.

UATECH is a joint initiative of the Ukrainian Venture Capital and Private Equity Association and Western NIS Enterprise Fund, which was established to introduce the capability of Ukrainian Tech products to the global market.

“The mission of our Association is to build the bridge between Ukrainian and Global investment and startup ecosystems, match the investors and Ukrainian entrepreneurs. Despite the fact that UVCA is mostly aiming on protecting rights and interests of its members, who are mostly investors, we cannot foster the growth of Ukrainian investment market without supporting Ukrainian startups. With this idea, we are initiating and implementing a lot of projects that give young entrepreneurs opportunities to present their products at the global market, learn practical things from leading experts and invertors”

Olga Afanasyeva
Executive Director of UVCA

«I am convinced that the IT-industry is certainly one of the most prospective sectors of Ukrainian economy. Today information technologies are penetrating all spheres of human activity, and the IT sector is growing rapidly. Ukraine is among the top countries with a pool of original startups, many of which stay only as ideas because of the lack of financing or even a chance to present themselves. By supporting 8 Ukrainian startups at CES-2017 in Las Vegas we open new possibilities for these promising startups at a global level, showing the world that Ukraine is not only an outsourcing country but a country with its own unique IT products»

Jaroslawa Johnson
President and CEO of Western NIS Enterprise Fund

The first time at the International Consumer Electronic Show (CES), that takes place every year in Las Vegas, Ukraine will present its national Tech Expo exhibiting 8 best startups, which were chosen by UVCA members – leading Ukrainian and foreign investors

You just need to put on LucidCatcher and go to sleep. Once you get into your lucid dream, your imagination is the only limit: you can face your past, fly to the moon, team up with Michael Jordan in the 1996 NBA finals or meet a far and beloved person.
