Creative Valley had the pleasure to welcome Mr Vasyl KHMELNYTSKY, First Vice President of the Ukrainian League of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs (ULIE) and founder of K.Fund, with his team.
In 2015, Mr. Vasyl Khmelnytsky united his public activities into K.Fund. The fund’s goal is to help talented young people achieve success in Ukraine.
One of his project was UNIT Factory (Ukrainien National IT Factory) with School 42. Using the innovative Peer-to-Peer training method by School 42, UNIT Factory is the only private educational institution in Ukraine. Around 300 students enrolled for full-fledged training in November 2016.
After visited School 42 and Station F, the mega-startup campus founded by Xavier Niel in Paris, Mr KHMELNYTSKY and his team came to Creative Valley with David GIRON, head of pedagogy at School 42 and Pierre GOHAR, Innovation director at Université Paris Saclay, to meet our startups and discuss about French startup ecosystem and the difference between our countries.
Vasyl Khmelnytsky’s fund – K.Fund – was set up to support projects related to education and the economy. Its key goal is to provide support for the sustainable development of an individual in education, information exchange, and in the search for and implementation of new ideas. We believe that having received high-quality education and a chance to fulfil their potential in Ukraine the new generation will transform the country. K.Fund provides new opportunities for personal and professional growth.
