Will the Ukrainian diaspora invest in Ukraine tech?

In 2016, USAID released a study about the potential for North American Ukrainian Diaspora investment in Ukraine.  This agency of the U.S. Government is primarily responsible for the administration of civilian foreign aid.  ICT, agriculture and education were highlighted in the study as the most attractive industries for investment.

On December 7, 2017, a Made in Ukraine Tech Town Hall discussion took place which covered the major findings of the study with a particular focus on the Ukrainian technology section.

Participants in this online meeting included:

Natalia Berezhna talked about how the project got started and future plans based on the study findings. Dr. Liesl Riddle, who spearheaded assessment team, presented the highlights of the study. Nick Bilogorskiy and Yevgen Sysoyev offered their own views on whether the Ukrainian Diaspora can be a viable partner for Ukraine tech investment.

The town hall was produced with the assistance and participation of USAID and Segura Consulting LLC.  The US-Ukraine Foundation provided organizational and marketing help.
