The Ukrainian startup InputSoft has joined the US accelerator Techstars and secured $120,000 of funding at a $3 million valuation, founder and CEO of the startup Anastasiia Smyk told AIN.UA. The co-founders are now going through the accelerator program in Turin (Italy), and the team in Ukraine is working on the development.

  • InputSoft is a SaaS platform for optimizing the utilization of human and technical resources and data analysis in airports.
  • The SaaS platform from InputSoft consists of two software suites — Resource Management and Data Management. These programs help airports and aircraft ground handling companies efficiently utilize human and technical resources, automate aircraft and passenger service processes, and improve them for both airlines and their customers.
  • The startup was founded in February 2021 by three co-founders: Anastasiia Smyk, Valentyn Zavadskyi, and Andrii Smyk have long worked in civil aviation.

Previously, InputSoft won mentorship support from Genesis and a cash prize as part of the YEP incubator program. It has also received a $25,000 grant from the Ukrainian Startup Fund and presented the company at the ALPHA Startup at Web Summit 2021 in Lisbon.

From January 24 to April 21, the startup team will participate in Cities of the Future Techstars Accelerator in Turin, which focuses on transportation, housing, energy, and infrastructure solutions.
