Ukrainian startups building for post-war economic recovery

Despite the ongoing war, Ukrainian startups continue to defy expectations. The total value of the Ukrainian startup ecosystem has risen to an estimated €28 billion — including twice the average number of unicorn companies per funded startup in Europe. To help entrepreneurs and tech companies continue to lay the groundwork for post-war economic recovery, we’re announcing the newest Google for Startups Ukraine Support Fund recipients.

Run in partnership with 1991, Ukraine’s first and largest accelerator, the $10 million Ukraine Support Fund provides equity-free cash awards and Google support to Ukrainian-founded tech companies. In addition to $100,000 of non-dilutive funding, selected startups receive Google Cloud credits as well as hands-on Google mentoring, product and technical support.
