On January 18th, during the World Economic Forum in Davos, big international institutional and venture funds came together to discuss rebuilding Ukraine initiatives and current opportunities of investing in Ukrainian businesses.
Investor-Only Roundtable was initiated by the Ukrainian Venture Capital and Private Equity Association (UVCA) in partnership with Aventures Capital.
Among participants there were such well-known and recognized funds as J.P.Morgan, Morgan Stanley, ff Venture Capital, PensionDanmark and other investors.
The participants of the roundtable supported the idea of co-investing with ukrainian-focused funds that are continuing their activities in the current conditions. Co-investing is an additional way to balance the risks, joining the insiders of the market, already well aware of the situation, its risks and opportunities.
Overall, participation in the implementation of various innovative rebuilding and recovery projects in Ukraine was estimated at a $1 trillion opportunity. Negotiations as to who will join the first wave of those, benefitting from this market, are still ongoing.
