We are European Business Angels,
Impulse-Investing into Ukrainian Startups today.

Collaboration with Ukrainian business angels

There is a lot German and other business angels can learn from their Ukrainian peers - and vice versa. Ukraimpulse is dedicated to build bridges between angels and startups for exploring collaboration potentials.

Impulse Investment with leverage

Ukraimpulse helps Ukrainian startups to secure initial funding. We invest tickets of 10.000 - 50.000€ initially as our "Impulse Investment". With our vast network of trusted co-investors we are able to leverage up to €200k additionally for Ukrainian startups.

Get investment-ready for the European market

We have a broad network with European industry leaders from Hardware & IoT, digital Health & MedTech, EdTech & GovTech. We support our startups with market insights and introductions to potential customers. 

How can Business Angel help Ukraine?

In 2023 we travelled to Lviv, Kyiv, Odessa and Kharkiv and met with 40+ stakeholders, to find out, what the early-stage startup ecosystem in Ukraine really needs right now.

We've summarized our key findings in our report "Business Angels and Reconstructing Ukraine", which describes the current situation and gives an outlook on the potentials Ukraine has to offer - today and in the future.

About our Mission

Despite the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, we strongly believe that investing in Ukraine's innovations not only is a sustainable aid for recovery but the nation's resilience and untapped potentials present unique opportunities for substantial returns.

To validate our thesis, we travelled to Ukraine and met 40+ stakeholders of the early-stage startup ecosystem on multiple trips to Kyiv, Lviv, Odesa and Kharkiv in 2023. Our thesis held up (you can discover our findings in our report on "Business Angels and Reconstructing Ukraine").

We therefore initiated Ukraimpulse, a European business angel micro-fund, focusing on investments in pre-seed and seed-stage startups in Ukraine, supporting them not only with capital, but also actively contribute with our know-how and network.

Our expertise is derived from decades of collective experience as entrepreneurs, corporate leaders and angel investors. We cumulated many years of experience doing business in Eastern Europe and especially Ukraine and have been on the ground in Ukraine with our humanitarian projects multiple times in the past years. We believe now is the time to shift from aid to recovery, so instead of providing aid, we provide what we're best at: Angel Investing.
