Business accelerator GrowthUP is the first Ukrainian business accelerator that works with technology start-ups at early stages. The team has been working in the industry since 2005 and is based on the experience gained during the implementation of several dozens of successful projects. In the autumn of 2013 the accelerator created a seed fund GrowthUP +. Through its history, GrowthUP has been involved in the number of industry-forming initiatives, helping to create and develop the startup ecosystem, as well as ensuring interaction between ecosystems of different countires. GrowthUP is currently a partner with such projects as Kiev Startup Week (kievstartupweek.com), Tech Networking Party (tn-party.com), Startup Crash Test (sctest.org) and SVOD Europe (http://svod-europe.com/).
