Sector X Acceleration Platform

The Sector X Acceleration Hub announces a set of startups for six new programs

The Sector X Acceleration Platform announces the set to programs for startups from across the CIS at various stages of development, focused on addressing the diverse challenges of young technology companies. Sector X is a space at UNIT.City Innovation Park that combines several areas — an accelerator hub for startups, corporate business programs and venture capital services for investors.

Among the Sector X Acceleration Platform programs:

  • FemTech, GreenTech and DeepTech

The program offers several formats, including FemTech for startups in the MVP stage, in which at least 75% of the funders are women; GreenTech is for prototype startups that create socially important eco products, and DeepTech is for socially important lab prototype developments designed to generate revenue.

On the FemTech, GreenTech and DeepTech programs startups are accepted not only from Ukraine but also from the CIS and Eastern European countries. Participants will receive instruction, how to turn a startup into a growing business, a free project development strategy and mentoring at every stage. Additional benefits include the opportunity to participate in one of the tracks of the Sector X Acceleration Platform together with a partner corporation (Farmak, L’oreal, Foxtrot), subject to confirmation of the partner and receipt of investments from venture funds.
