Western NIS Enterprise Fund launches new fund to Invest in startups in Ukraine and Moldova

Western NIS Enterprise Fund (WNISEF) has launched U.Ventures, a new fund focusing on investing in early stage technology startups from Ukraine and Moldova.

U.Ventures will invest in early stage companies, from Seed to Series A, with investments ranging from USD100,000 to USD500,000. U.Ventures will back start-ups from Ukraine and Moldova that typically have a product with first traction, targeting large addressable markets, with a technology edge, driven by motivated teams with proven track record, and reputable co-investors.
To date U.Ventures has invested just over USD2.3 million in six companies which are emerging leaders in their segments, quickly expanding into global markets.
“Ukraine is in the midst of an economic revival led by the efforts of innovative young men and women, who are developing globally competitive companies, revolutionary new products, and ideas. We founded U.Ventures to help ambitious startup teams navigate through the complex entrepreneurial journey from concept to significant shareholder value creation, working in a supportive and respectful manner as full lifecycle partners. We look forward to providing capital and expertise to tomorrow’s technology leaders,” says Jaroslawa Z Johnson, President and CEO of Western NIS Enterprise Fund.
