UkraineInvest was created in 2016 to attract and support investment in Ukraine. We provide investors with objective, real-world information and advice about doing business in Ukraine.
Back in 2016 being one of the co-creators of UkraineInvest, I was responsible for overall strategy, working closely with existing investors to unlock their investments, identifying quality investment products and offering investment opportunities for new strategic investors. I was involved in talent management and HR matters, created regional teams and covered administrative matters.

In my current capacity, I advise on strategy and marketing, e.g. Ukraine House Davos, Ukraine House Toronto, etc. I organise high profile meetings between the state officials and international business community, work on business development.
