We’re here to help small and medium-sized businesses grow, succeed, then grow again, becoming genuine catalysts for their local economies, then their region.

We connect our clients to local consultants and international advisers who can help transform a huge range of businesses. From the smallest looking to grow to those going global, our expert network of doers, thinkers and advisers help our clients to step up and start thinking big.

We support businesses from many industries, such as food and beverages, wholesale and retail distribution and construction and engineering. We don’t just work in the capital city. In fact, half of our projects are outside Kiev

Smart growth? Know how.

With funding from the EBRD Shareholder Special Fund, we helped Toy-Toy Ukraine, a toy distribution company, introduce an information management system to manage their growth.

Whether it’s a new website, a quality management system, a marketing strategy or even a completely new governance structure, we work with you to define the best project to fit your needs. Then, we’ll support you through the whole process, using our years of experience to make sure the project achieves the best results.  One year after every project, we return to measure the impact we made. And the results speak for themselves.

Within a year of a project:

  • 82 per cent of our clients in Ukraine increase their turnover – with a median increase of 68 per cent – and 74 per cent improve their productivity, as they expand their business.
  • 63 per cent see significant job creation
  • 21 per cent of our clients in Ukraine secure external funding to finance their growth.

Business advice

If your company could benefit from a specific type of know-how – the technical knowledge to build a website, for example, or to introduce a quality management system that will meet ISO standards – then we can support a range of projects. These usually involve working with qualified local consultants and often last around four to six months.

This advice covers specialised areas of expertise including:

  • strategy
  • marketing
  • organisation
  • operations
  • technology
  • engineering solutions
  • quality management
  • financial management
  • energy efficiency and environment

To make your businesses more competitive, our experts draw on and apply the latest best practice and thinking in these areas.  We know each of our 124 consultants in Ukraine personally and they meet our rigorous standards.  We work closely with them to deliver the highest quality advice for your business. Our aim is to build a strong, competitive market for business advice in each country that will thrive long after we’ve gone.

We cover a proportion of the costs of these projects, depending on the size and location of your enterprise and the type of advice you need.  You can out more about this by downloading the guide to our grants.
