200+ companies opening to the world with Brave Business matchmaking platform

Meet Ukrainian Brave Business - B2B platform that aims to connect Ukrainian manufacturers with reliable overseas partners to support Ukrainian business and raise awareness . This empowers more buyers to visit Ukrainian factories onsite when the war is over to see that Ukrainian business is about quality and is very welcoming to foreign investment.

The Ukrainian business is facing difficulties surviving, but despite the war, it continues to work, unite into clusters, produce quality products, export, participate in joint stands at professional international exhibitions, and take part in trade missions. Ukrainian bold entrepreneurs are using every opportunity not only to maintain their business but also to develop it. The furniture export volume in 2022 was $806.6 million, which is $56.2 million more than the COVID year of 2020. "Yes, this is less than in peaceful times when we worked in 120 countries, but it also shows that the world needs Ukrainian furniture and is ready to support the economy of our country by buying Furniture of Ukraine," says Oksana Donska, a member of the Board of the Ukrainian Association of Furniture Manufacturers, and CEO of the "Furniture of Ukraine Business Expo" exhibition. One of the important mechanisms for development in difficult times is the use of innovation, and this is where EventsWallet comes in handy.

UBB (Ukrainian Brave Business) is the first Ukrainian platform for professional B2B deals. The platform was created as part of the Swiss-Ukrainian Project "Strengthening Member Business Associations of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises in Ukraine", which is implemented by the United Nations Development Program in Ukraine UNDP Ukraine in cooperation with the Ministry of Economy of Ukraine and with the support of Switzerland.
