Mission

Seed Forum Eastern Europe Foundation’s mission is to develop a vibrant startup eco-system, fuel technology based SME growth and stop rapid brain drain from Eastern Europe, which significantly obstructs social and economic development of the region.
The goal is to provide quality education, training, mentorship, community of like-minded people, infrastructure and access to finance to startup companies and young entrepreneurs to help them succeed in their business ventures.
Seed Forum Eastern Europe Foundation currently oversees three national non-profit NGOs in Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova respectively, namely:
– Seed Forum Ukraine Foundation
– Seed Forum Georgia Foundation
– Seed Forum Moldova Institution

Public - Private Partnerships

iHUBs are launched in non-commercial public-private partnership (PPP) with local municipalities and Universities, where the local authorities allocate centrally located office space free of charge for a period of an average of 10 years and Seed Forum takes on the responsibility to refurbish, equip and operate the facility. Grant funding is used only as startup capital during the starting phase of each iHUB launch, then each location runs on a self-suitability model, where residents and community members pay low-level fees for the services rendered by the iHUBs.
Having demonstrated efficiency and results oriented work the demand for our services has grown and we now have confirmed interest from over 10 cities to launch iHUB centres in PPP with Seed Forum.
