UAngel - Two Years of Success for Ukraine

The Ukrainian Business Angels Network – UAngel – celebrated its second birthday this July, 2016 and the team behind it is looking forward to celebrating many more. To summarize their activity and the positive effect it has had on business angel investment in Ukraine, UAngel recently released an infographic detailing types of investment, performance indicators and other invaluable statistics. To get the story behind their success, EBAN interviewed their executive director – Regina Makhotina – and coordinator – Daria Demchenko.

UAngel is the first and only business angel network in Ukraine, and it has defied all expectations so far. Launched in 2014, the network filled a gap in the Ukrainian startup ecosystem: according to Regina, while there were a number of incubators, accelerators and venture funds functioning in Ukraine at that time, there was a noticeable lack in business angel funding. Startups either had to look abroad, or attempt to find individual business angels, which was not an easy undertaking – “there was a need to identify these individuals and consolidate them”. However, there was still a lot of uncertainty about the timing and potential for success for the network, exacerbated by the fact that the launch coincided with the Ukrainian revolution.
