Last week Canadian content producers from Toronto, Dan Herman, and Chase Kaiser, visited Ukraine to spotlight the Ukrainian tech ecosystem in wartime and shed light on it, representing a documentary for a global audience.
At the beginning of summer, we communicated with Dan. Then he visited the first Ukrainian Pavillion in Collision, Toronto, and met the delegation of Ukrainian Startup Fund who invited him to visit the country. It was so impressive to finally meet the team in Kyiv and Lviv within the IT Arena, even in such unprecedented and challenging times and conditions.
Dan Herman and Chase Kaiser are Canada-based content producers. Dan Herman is the former Executive Director of Innovation Policy for the Government of Canada and an advisor to governments around the world on innovation policy.
Herman and Kaiser have spent the past year travelling worldwide to film Magnetic Cities, a documentary series that profiles startup ecosystems and looks at what makes each unique. The series will be released later this year, but a trailer can be viewed here:
