The Ukrainian online notarization platform OneNotary, working in the US market, has raised a $1.75 million investment round.
- This seed round was co-led by Adventures Lab VC, Digital Future VC, uventures, TMT Investments PLC, and GoodPaper Venture.
- The OneNotary platform was founded in 2020 by the Ukrainian entrepreneur Ivan Zinkov, three engineers, and a designer. The project started amid the pandemic.
- According to the Adventures Lab’s managing partner Andrew Kryvorchuk, his fund met Ivan Zinkov, the founder and CEO at OneNotary, a year before the deal. They had regular communication and consultations and monitored the development of the startup’s product.
“First of all, they have a great founder and team. They are excellent in B2B sales in the US and have exceptional soft skills. The team bootstrapped for several years, invested all their savings in the project, and got dozens of “no” from potential investors, who didn’t believe in the idea to promote such a project from Ukraine in the US market. Until we demonstrated the opposite,” Kryvorchuk said.
