Ucluster.org is relaunching in March 2020 and expands its presence on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter. The Ucluster portal connects Ukrainian regional clusters of entrepreneurs, academia and local authorities and offers US-based investors insights into the Ukrainian startup community.
To Ukrainian startup founders and cluster participants, we offer news on startups and regional clusters both in Ukraine and abroad and organize events that bring the Ukrainian cluster community together. To investors in the United States and elsewhere, we provide insights into the growth of promising startups in Ukraine.
Ucluster.org was founded by Sergei Sokolenko and Stanislav Sokolenko (1936-2014). Sergei is an angel investor and is currently leading product management for Streaming Analytics at Google. In the past he worked in product management at Amazon and Microsoft and also founded Cuesense, a natural language and sentiment analysis startup.
Stanislav Sokolenko was a well-known Ukrainian economist and Chairman of the Board of Ukrimpex. While working in the 1980s at the United Nations in Austria as a senior officer responsible for technical assistance programs in India, China, and Korea, Stanislav analyzed new production systems based on networks (clusters). After returning to Ukraine, he popularized cluster formation in Ukraine and co-founded construction, textile, and tourism clusters in Khmelnitsky region.
Ucluster.org is operated by Ucluster LLC, based in Seattle, Washington, USA. You can learn more about our programs and plans on our website.
