UNDP launches renewed effort to strengthen Ukrainian businesses
July 10, 2023
Kyiv, 10 July 2023 – The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Ukraine launched the second round of a business support initiative with a call for applications. The project provides direct training to businesses, equipping them with the necessary tools to minimize war-related risks. The first round has already demonstrated measurable impact, enabling 18 Ukrainian enterprises to unlock new growth prospects and tap into broader consumer markets, thereby ensuring both local economic development and the continued provision of important consumer goods and services to communities impacted by war.
Participants will receive approximately 24-38 hours of professional advisory support focused on comprehensive business diagnostics, location consulting, logistics and legal advice, roadmap formation for geographic diversification, networking opportunities, guidance on accessing aid programmes for war victims or displaced enterprises, and consultations to ensure successful adaptation.
Open to micro-, small, and medium-sized enterprises affected by active hostilities or considering relocation or expansion throughout Ukraine, the second phase of the project will select 15 export-oriented businesses registered in Ukraine across various sectors, such as services, trade, manufacturing, and B2B services with export potential.
This project presents a unique opportunity for businesses to rejuvenate and thrive in new territories. For any inquiries or questions, please contact the hotline at +38 (044) 334 64 13 or email email@example.com.
Participation is free.
Interested businesses must submit their application by 21 July 2023, 12:00 (GMT+3) through the following link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScjixjmjsU0FrzvxoTKdhEbZGKoJPaRLsOw0glQLZJ5gACVRA/viewform?pli=1
