Startup Wise Guys



Europe’s leading B2B startup accelerator

Startup Wise Guys is one of the most active early stage investors in Europe and at the beginning of 2020 was listed among Top 50 most active investors globally on Crunchbase. Our portfolio has already had 2 major exits, including StepShot from Ukraine that was acquired by UiPath in 2019.
To help techy startup founders become true entrepreneurs, we have been running a world class startup accelerator since 2012. We focus on B2B SaaS, Fintech, Cyber and Sustainability verticals. Already for more than 2 years we have also been running an equity free online program and have helped 300+ startups to learn business basics and prepare for the first funding round and product launch.
Our program in Ukraine will provide both – hands-on practical online knowledge modules with webinars and online workshops, combined with work with mentors through Bootcamps and 1:1 meetings. The program is fully prepared to be run online, however, if COVID restrictions will allow, we are really looking forward to doing some hands-on work onsite in Kyiv at Bootcamps and Demo Day.
