Speech Details:

Why is it important for us? 

Ukraine’s defence technology sector is developing very rapidly and has joint defence projects with various European countries and beyond. For example, Ukrainian and French companies recently signed a licence agreement to create an ammunition production capability under the KNDS France/Nexter licence, as announced by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. 

Also, the sector has strong governmental support. More than 1,600 developments were already registered in Brave1 military cluster. Since July 2023, more than 170 no-equity grants have been allocated within the project, totalling $3M+. On top of that, In April together with partners, we launched the Defence Builder Accelerator, which aims to create conditions for the systemic development of Ukraine’s defence sector. Shortly after its launch, Defence Builder signed a memorandum of cooperation with the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine to jointly support developers in creating technological solutions at the request of the Defence Forces. We aim to deliver them to the front line as soon as possible.

Our commitment to the development of the defence startup ecosystem aims to accelerate global peace and help Ukrainian founders advance their innovations, access a broad network of investors, and improve the investment climate in Ukraine. Eurosatory 2024 is going to become another platform for cooperation.
