Accelerator 1991: The Next Batch

1991 Accelerator announces a new program for the development of the startup ecosystem in Ukraine

1991 Accelerator, the leading accelerator in Ukraine, announced the launch of a new program to support pre-seed and seed stage startups — 1991 Acceleration: Next Batch. Participating startups will gain the resources, mentorship, and access to a global community they need to accelerate their growth and success.

The business journey of technology entrepreneurs is often hampered by limited resources, inexperience, and a lack of industry connections. Without the right mentorship and support, startups can struggle to overcome these obstacles and reach their goals. Participating in the 1991 Acceleration: Next Batch program will help founders and their teams gain access to a network of professional mentors, investors, and partners and the skills and knowledge needed to compete in the national and global arenas.


The program will run for twelve weeks from June to September 2023. The finale of the acceleration will be an open demo day, where startups can present their business to potential investors, partners, and the media.

Applications for participation in the program are already open on the website and will continue until May 21, 2023. Participation in the program is free.

Implementation of the “1991 Acceleration” program became possible thanks to the USAID Project “Economic Support of Ukraine.”
