10 super promising startups from Ukraine to keep an eye on!

Despite facing unimaginable challenges, Ukraine still has a promising startup ecosystem full of fresh innovation and exciting startups. 

Before the 2022 invasion, Ukraine’s tech scene was thriving thanks to a highly-skilled workforce and a commitment to innovation. The country was also developing itself as a leader in fuelling the green energy transition with promising developments and innovation in climate and green tech. With a strong tradition in the energy industry, it was a nation pushing forward developments in renewables, electric vehicles and the use of hydrogen.

The wider European startup community has since sent an impressive and powerful amount of support to Ukraine, helping to bolster the emerging ecosystem of innovation. Different initiatives from startups themselves, dedicated funds from the EIC, and movements to show solidarity have stood out over the past year and also reflect how we can rally together for progress.
