BRISE Capital Investment Company has become an official partner of PITCH DAY by the Ukrainian Startup Fund. The aim of the partnership is to increase attention to Ukrainian startups and promote them among potential investors.
«It is our conviction that the Ukrainian Startup Fund has become a full-fledged market institution for 2 years of public work and at the same time a reliable and effective platform for cooperation between the market and the state. BRISE has acceded to the cooperation with the Fund since the first days of its work and actually since the First Pitch Day, supporting numerous initiatives for ecosystem development. At the same time, 2022 promises even more points for cooperation and we will be happy to remain a reliable partner for the USF in the future», commented Oleksandr Yatsenko, Managing Partner at BRISE Capital.
BRISE is a family office specialized in MarTech and E-commerce domains. It is currently working in Ukraine and is constantly looking for promising local teams from Central and Eastern Europe. The company is aimed at startups that build their products in these verticals or use SaaS and Marketplace business models.
The goal of BRISE Capital is to add 5-7 new companies annually. Nowadays, they invested in 8 portfolio companies among which are Finmap, VOCHI, OVO, Disqover, Getpin, and others.
According to Pavlo Kartashov, CEO of the Ukrainian Startup Fund, PR is no less important for young startup teams than grants. «In the fund we have already witnessed situations when some startups even refused our funding due to attracting investment after impressive pitches. This is a good sign and that is why we want to deepen this area of work», he added, talking about the preconditions of this initiative.
