On October 19th, 2021, UVCA and the National University Of Kyiv Mohyla Academy have signed a memorandum on cooperation.
The goal of the Memorandum is cooperation in innovation development, support of the Ukrainian innovation infrastructure, implementation of innovation and investment programs, attracting additional investments to promising projects (startups), international cooperation in educational programs for startups, entrepreneurs, and beginner investors, conducting various investment and educational events at the University.
Another goal of the Memorandum is support of Kyiv-Mohyla scientific-tech park, which will host educational and mentorship programs, including the ones in cooperation with the world top universities.
Various events will be hosted: competitive selection of innovation and investment projects (startups), investment forums, round tables, conferences, etc.
We understand the huge part that the University Of Kyiv Mohyla Academy takes in the Ukrainian education space, and the potential that is being created there. At the same time, we, as an association that unites representatives of the investment market, understands the trends, pain points, and challenges of the Ukrainian and global economy, and what efforts are needed to overcome that. In my opinion, joining our efforts is a logical step in development of the modern investment ecosystem that will create new opportunities for the youth, beginner-entrepreneurs, and startup founders. This will give them all the opportunities to develop their innovative ideas and solutions, found new businesses, and show Ukrainian projects to the global community, and create new international connections.
I'm sure that together with the Academy, and with support from the members of the Association, as well as our Ukrainian and international partners, we will reach the stated goals and create one of the best innovation ecosystems in the world.
