Hello, friends! We’ve just come back from the Valley, and we want to say: YES, BREAKTHROUGH HAPPENED! It was five-week engrossing and total deep dive into verse of Silicon Valley where the sensor of success and happiness is through the roof! It was five weeks of continuous operation under a constant stress, but at the same time every moment was a discovery and full of great possibilities!

Our schedule was bursting at the seams with the number of meetings (50 per month), and the address book splited from the number of new contacts (2 networking-events per day). At night, we responded to the letters, because they just fell out of our mailboxes! But we decided that it was not enough, and organized three own events: Falling in Love with Ukrainian Startups, Start Ukraine Up and  Inaugural VIP Dinner

Curious about the results? Here you are:
