European founders and entrepreneurs
who have come together to help

We are an accomplished group of European founders and investors. Over the past few years, we have collectively raised billions in funding for fast-growing companies, managed around 50,000 employees, taken three companies public, expanded into 50 markets and created a market value of more than EUR 50 billion. Our goal is to provide humanitarian relief to the Ukrainian people at scale, quickly and efficiently where it is needed most.

Strong ties to Ukraine

After witnessing Russia’s invasion of Ukraine unfold, and with many of our founders born and raised in Ukraine, we felt compelled to help friends, family and colleagues.

We saw the need to help

We soon realized that much more was needed than any of us could do alone. Therefore, we joined forces to pool our resources and dedicate our capacities full-time and long-term to Ukraine.
