An investment fund Flyer One Ventures has become an official partner of PITCH DAY by the Ukrainian Startup Fund. The purpose of the partnership is to increase attention to Ukrainian startups and promote them among potential investors. In addition, representatives of the investment fund will provide free mentoring sessions to those winners of PITCH DAY, in which areas they have expertise.

«For Flyer One Ventures, USF has always been a very important initiative that helps the Ukrainian startup market to develop. Every day we strive to find as many talented entrepreneurs in Eastern Europe as possible and help them become key players at the international level. Thus, in the three years since our foundation, we have invested in 35+ companies. Through initiatives such as USF, we get to know, network and have the opportunity to collaborate in the future with a large number of early-stage startup founders that could potentially become our portfolio companies», commented the start of the partnership Olena Mazhuha, Investment & PR Director at Flyer One Ventures.

Flyer One Ventures is an international venture capital fund with offices in Kyiv and London,  investing in startups B2B & Enterprise SaaS, EdTech, mobile apps, games, FoodTech, and others in the Seed and Series A stages.

The fund team helps talented founders of portfolio companies grow their business through online marketing, product, financial, legal expertise, PR, branding, and hiring R&D professionals.

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.
