I’m delighted to continue supporting the Ukrainian Startup Ecosystem as a member of the UVCA Supervisory Board Member in 2021 and a bridge to Silicon Valley. In the last several years, Ukrainian founders have made tremendous progress on the world stage. We are now starting to see measurable results in the form of growing revenue, category leadership, and growing investment from top tier VCs. I expect the roaring 20s will catapult Ukraine into one of the leading ecosystems in the world.
