Japan media Nikkei Asia features Ukrainian startups which showcased at CES 2023 and pitched during the global gathering of innovators in Las Vegas.
- Dmytro Kuzmenko, CEO of the Ukrainian Venture Capital and Private Equity Association (UVCA): “The war has made it almost impossible for big institutions to invest in Ukraine, but tech startups can still lure foreign investment, albeit in small amounts, and support our economy via taxes”
- Bohdan Vorobiov, OptySun founder and CEO:”Russian attacks have destroyed [Ukraine’s] infrastructure and there’s a lack of clean water for residents and the military. It takes time and money to distribute water using vehicles.”
- Volodymyr C. Chykalov, G-MAK: “It will take a long time before other industries, including farming, recover. When the war is over, we plan to build a plant to expand the business.”
Organization of the Ukrainian delegation at CES 2023 became possible due to the joint work of Ukrainian Venture Capital and Private Equity Association (UVCA), Ukrainian Startup Fund with USAID Competitive Economy Program in Ukraine (USAID CEP), Western NIS Enterprise Fund, Global Innovation through Science and Technology and Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine.
