18 November 2022

On November 9, 2022, the Zubr Capital team took part in the "InvestPro Poland and Ukraine conference" in Warsaw. 

Konstantin Zapolyansky, Senior investment director, explained in his presentation, what should a modern investor be able to do. A few notes from his presentation about Ukrainian IT companies. 

  • The central thesis: Ukrainian IT has survived. 
  • Quick adaptation to new conditions.
  • Creation of new offices and partial relocation.
  • Scaling the product to new markets.
  • Strong motivation for results and help to the country.
  • Trend: before the war, the company was not profitable, now it is profitable and with a good Unit-economy.

Another important part of the report was devoted to the competencies of a modern investor. That's what Zubr Capital considers important in order to be successful as an investor giving smart money.

  • Develop the strategy for entering North American and European markets.
  • Identifying the best Go-to-market approach.
  • Help build the Sales & Marketing organization, including recruiting the best talent in the market and attracting top international advisers.
  • Help build strategic partnerships.
  • Portfolio companies’ ecosystem (sharing internal expertise).

One of the best parts of the conference is the warm networking. We have a few photos of how it was. Just have a look.
