We invest in Ukrainian founders with a global mindset

Angel One Venture Fund was created by the UCU Foundation. The Foundation's goal is to invest in Ukrainian startups, help them implement their ideas and develop a startup culture in Ukraine.

About the Fund

The fund provides start-up capital (pre-seed & seed capital) to scale startups based on technologies, innovations and intellectual property developed by Ukrainian founders.

We invest in Ukrainian startups in all technology categories in the amount of $50,000 to $200,000. The main focus is on areas such as FinTech, SaaS, EdTech, AI/ML. A third of the investment will go to Edtech startups and those that seek to make a significant contribution to solving global problems.

We start with $1.5 million in equity and continue our fundraising campaign in Ukraine and the world.
