Third Financial Fair for SMEs: A Step Towards Improving the Investment Climate in Ukraine
ProCredit Bank will take part in the third Financial Fair for Small and Medium Enterprises, which will be held in Kyiv at Parkovy Convention and Exhibition Centre on 16 April 2019. The fair, which is one of the main events for Ukrainian businesses, is organised by the German-Ukrainian Fund and brings together the representatives of SMEs, as well as the leading players in the Ukrainian financial industry. Entrepreneurs at the event will be able to obtain information about possible sources of funding for their businesses, the investment programmes available as well as hear the success stories of other SMEs. In addition, the agenda includes field-specific talks and educational sessions, which will be held by business experts.
In addition, partner banks of the German-Ukrainian Fund will present their services for small and medium-sized enterprises at the fair.
“As experience shows, the Financial Fair organised by the German-Ukrainian Fund is not just a business forum and networking platform for entrepreneurs - it is an effective tool for the development of the participants' own businesses and for the improvement of the investment climate in Ukraine. The fairs held in the previous years are the best proof of this statement,” Valerii Maiboroda, the Acting Head of the GUF noted. “As in the past, participating in this unique opportunity to find additional sources of funding to develop your business is absolutely free of charge.”
