Pitch us
Who we are and what we believe

We are a venture capital firm based in Kyiv that invests in technology companies with Eastern European DNA. This means that the founders are from Eastern Europe or the engineering & software development is done in the region.

We believe Eastern Europe can be globally competitive in technology and that tech companies are going to account for an increasing amount of global GDP going forward. We are a Ukrainian company so it makes sense that we would jump in the pool and make a significant allocation of capital to this new economy.

Our strategy

We focus on late seed and series A investments across the tech spectrum. We avoid gaming and gambling. Otherwise, the door is open. We work hard to keep our minds flexible and remain curious.

We invest more than capital. We provide our founders with strategic support and a network of contacts in the United States and Europe to expand their companies internationally and accelerate growth. Even when we source opportunities from other geographies – especially the U.S. – we help our portfolio companies link up with talented engineers from Ukraine’s massive and growing IT sector.

The access we offer to high-quality, low-cost Ukrainian engineering talent is the key reason established venture capital and technology firms in the United States invite us to join their cap tables.
