“Genesis nursed successful world-class Ukrainian technology products: Jiji, BetterMe, and Headway. We have already created a unique business ecosystem for the Ukrainian market, and we want to continue exchanging our expertise with European entrepreneurs. Our new project TRMNL4 will become a platform of opportunities for the development of IT businesses, as well as exchange of practical knowledge and networking,”Artem Kopanev, COO Genesis, comments.
- An example of educational programs for founders within TRMNL4 is the StartUp Academy, which Genesis and Meta have been implementing since 2021. During this period, more than 120 startups participated in the program, and seven of them attracted investments in the amount of $100,000 to $1 million afterwards. In particular, these companies are: Bloomcoding, Inputsoft, EasySales, QuickShippers, and others.
- The second direction for TRMNL4 is T4.Community — an exclusive community that currently has more than 100 founders from various European countries, in particular, Ukraine, Poland, Czechia, Romania, Georgia, Lithuania, Estonia, and others.
“All features from TRMNL4 are free. However, only the most motivated can participate in the programs or the community — this requires going through a pre-selection. Our goal is to unite truly ambitious entrepreneurs from Central and Eastern Europe and provide resources for high-quality growth: a network, business content, access to the best funds investing in SEE, and honest feedback from colleagues and our experts,”Tetiana Ladanova, program manager for startups, comments.
By the end of 2023, the TRMNL4 team plans to launch a series of open online events from TRMNL4, and is also preparing for a new season of the Genesis StartUp Academy together with Meta next year.
