To build and scale a company from scratch you would need a lot of finances. More often the prototypes, mvp and the first tests are being made with company’s own money, but what’s next? The next steps are much bigger and include testing the audience and business model, production launch (if you’re making a hardware product) and scaling. So what will you do if your angels’ investments are almost gone and there is not enough traction to raise money from a VC? (usually a round A of investments starts from $1mln.)

We have gone through all these issues and problems though our work at Ecoisme. And we want to share our vision, solutions and experiences that we and our partners, colleagues and friends came up with. For this reason we have organized a panel during which we will discuss what instruments are better for the early-stage companies and what instruments are better for scaling. Beside this we will talk about what are the usual terms of these tools and their usual consequences. This is a panel about investments, grants and loans from angels and venture funds, as well as angel’s syndicates and funds.

The speakers are:

  • Sviatoslav Sviatnenko – Director of Business Development at Borsch Ventures, received a grant from Horizon2020 (€1.2M EUR) for Ukrainian company Polyteda Cloud.
  • Natalia Jędrak – Business Creation Manager at KIC InnoEnergy (the leading EIT organization that, supports innovations and entrepreneurship in EU’s sustainable energy field) 
  • Roman Zinchenko – Co-founder of Greencubator, he brought European Bank of Reconstruction and Development grant program for Ukrainians companies that work with clean tech, received a 2017 Bright Award from Stanford University for contributions to environmental sustainability.
  • Deborah Fairlamb – Director at Ukrainian National Startup Fund
  • Olga Afanasyeva – Executive director at Ukrainian Venture Capital and Private Equity Association

Panel moderator is Ivan Pasichnyk, CEO and co-founder Ecoisme
