€1,000,000: 100 Ukrainian enterprises can receive grants from the EU and Germany

Under the EU4Business program, funded by the European Union and the German government, Ukrainian micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) with export potential and innovative capabilities can receive 100 grants of up to €10,000 each for recovery, development, and sustainability. This is the second wave of support for Ukrainian businesses from the EU and Germany within the framework of a grant competition for 100 MSMEs since the beginning of 2024.

"Supporting and stimulating the development of Ukrainian entrepreneurship is one of the priorities for our Government.  Indeed, now, during the war, it is the business activity that invigorates the economy of Ukraine most and allows us as the Government to meet the country's defense needs, which we finance at the expense of taxes paid by national business. Domestic enterprises have been operating in the face of constant rocket attacks, blackouts, supply chains disruption and a human resources deficit. That is why we are grateful to our partners for their grant support of the Ukrainian entrepreneurs, which enables SMEs to develop, modernize their production and thus - increase export potential," commented Nadiya Bigun, Deputy Minister of Economy of Ukraine.
