On February 21, 2023, a project event for Cluster Platform participants was organized by COSA, a UNIC member, for entrepreneurs and technical scientists.
During the event, participants had the opportunity to listen to speeches by experts from CIPE Ukraine, the U.S.-Ukraine Business Council (USUBC), the UN Global Compact in Ukraine, and the Entrepreneurship and Export Promotion Office, Diia.Business I Ternopil and representatives of participating companies and institutions that joined the Cluster Platform project as entrepreneurs and innovators.
Except for the issues regarding supporting Ukrainian entrepreneurs in modern realities, the event raised the issue regarding the importance of implementing integrity practices when attracting investments and scaling up the business. In particular, Daria Bilinska, UNIC Member Support Manager, shared with the audience the opportunities offered to companies by membership in the Network to establish relations with foreign partners and attract funds for business development and restoration.
"Everyone knows the international community is ready to help only reliable businesses. And compliance is the main tool for proving the company’s good reputation, particularly by preventing legal, reputational, and financial problems, preventing fraud, and helping to maintain the security of employees in companies. The UNIC’s activity is designed to help businesses change internal business processes according to the best compliance practices, to be able to work with risks, and to avoid reputational and financial losses, which is especially relevant when searching for international partners and attracting funds for the survival of Ukrainian business", Daria Bilinska has noted.
We thank the organizers for the invitation, the excellent organization of the event, and the opportunity to speak at it and introduce the audience to UNIC’s activities and tools.
For reference: Cluster Platform is a donor project of CIPE Ukraine, which COSA implements to support Ukrainian businesses affected by the war by creating a platform that will unite small and medium enterprises and research structures from different regions of Ukraine to establish a cluster business synergies and simplifying their access to technology and professional services.
