Nataly Veremevea, director of TechUkraine is in France to establish links with the French ecosystem and tell the war, which is also played out in digital.
- One of our most important projects is the TechUkraine.org portal. We realized that we were not communicating enough about the Ukrainian tech ecosystem. The global public doesn’t know much about what’s going on in Ukraine, and we decided to fill that gap. We also carried out a number of other activities, such as international preparation courses for our startups. We were inspired by French Tech, because it is a high-performance organization that does a lot of good for the French technological ecosystem.
- I think that after the war, Ukraine will have a lot to share on cybersecurity, because it is the first war where this aspect is so important.
- In general, our most critical need is funding. As we are not supported by the government, we are struggling to find budgets as we see many needs in the ecosystem. We try to connect with communities around the world, we want to be the bridge to Ukrainian IT.
