One of the goals of Razom IT is to give more opportunities for Ukrainian startups and entrepreneurs to be placed front and center of the New York startup scene. The Hatchery’s “Are You Serious?” pitch night, which has run in the city for six years, is one such great opportunity. Razom IT partnered with The Hatchery for the second time to bring a Ukrainian edition of AYS and showcase five early-stage startups* with Ukrainian roots in front of a panel of investors tasked with giving their honest feedback about the startups’ technology, business, presentation, financial plan, marketing strategy, and more.
When we think about Ukrainians in tech, the bright and the brilliant come to mind. We also think of the engineers who can build the geekiest tech-solutions in the world, win Google and Facebook computer science competitions, and get talent-based visas to the US on a whim!
Razom IT is bringing together incubators and accelerators from New York and Ukraine to facilitate the dialogue between the risk-takers, let them share their success stories and nightmare scenarios, exchange opinions about the actual opportunities and working business models. Join us for one evening full of information, connections and inspiration.
