Support Ukrainian startups NOW program


The FREE Ukraine Foundation jointly with the Ukrainian venture capital and private equity association (UVCA) launched the program of targeted assistance to people whose professional employment needs help right now. Their lives, the lives of their families, the future of their startups depend on your help. It must be emphasized that the Ukrainian IT industry is an integral part of the global IT industry, they are deeply integrated into one another. And people are actively integrated into various Tech global communities, who in turn are part of the cultural, educational, scientific society groups in all countries of the world.

  • The team select projects and people that have suffered the most or are in a critical situation.
  • The program is only focused on those who decided to stay in Ukraine and NOT refugees who are already able to get some assistance outside of Ukraine.
  • The team has identified a targeted approach that is a more flexible response to the individual needs of start-up projects to keep them going. This includes not only financial assistance but the help of additional specialists, consultants, technical support (in the broadest sense), as well as support for connections and additional contacts.
