We decided to launch this program because we are so inspired by the stories of founders who–despite the raging war–are currently trying to create new products with global potential in Ukraine. This is more important than ever for our economy and for realizing Ukraine’s human potential. Our Virtual Legal Officers strive to support the founders of these startups with what we do best – give legal solutions and impart our expertise in startup structuring, – Margarita Sivakova, CEO of Legal Nodes
