CrunchBase has teamed up with East-West Digital News, the publisher of Ukraine Digital News, to cover key tech and venture trends from Russia, Ukraine, Belarus and Kazakhstan. Starting from now, EWDN chief editor Adrien Henni publishes a monthly column in this famous industry resource, highlighting the most notable deals as well as promising tech innovations from these countries.
“With tiny venture investment volumes, this region may look peripheral on the global high tech map. However, its world-class engineers and bold startup entrepreneurs fuel global innovation in many ways. Many popular applications and technologies used by global giants were developed in the region. This is why it deserves to be better known and understood from international audiences,” Henni says.
Henni’s inaugural January 2019 review gives due coverage to Ukraine, from Horizon Capital’s new $200 million fund to the fake AI allegations concerning Ring’s Ukrainian R&D team.
Previously, EWDN and CrunchBase partnered to publish “Startup Investment and Innovation in Emerging Europe,” the first-ever study covering 24 countries of Central and Eastern Europe.
