A list of foreign funds, which invested in Ukrainian startups and those, who will make intro
According to Vladimir Nesterenko, totally there are listed 80 investors (Ed. note: at the time of publication of the English version of the material, the list has extended to 116 points), including not only funds, but also accelerators, incubators and angel communities. There are such famous names as Andreessen Horowitz, Founders Fund, Greycroft, GV, Index Ventures, Khosla, Lightspeed, Social Capital and SV Angel. The absolute majority (63) are investors from the USA. As for the European investment companies, their number in the list is much less.
A major benefit of the list, according to its authors, consists in the feature that the founders of the funded Ukrainian startups are next to each of the funds. Therefore, we can immediately see the opportunities for intro and networking.
These investors are experiences in dealing with our founders. It is logical to assume that if a fund is satisfied with its investment, it will be keenly focused on the intro from a founder. Moreover, many funds invest in the narrow geography and often it is not evident where exactly.
