Our added value

Over the 9+ years of working in VC, we have developed and honed relationships with leading global investors and corporates, whose interests span across industries and stages. Drawing upon our network, we support our portfolio companies by proactively soliciting large, growth-minded co-investors in subsequent rounds.

We utilize our industry knowledge and network to give portfolio companies and partner VCs access to the highly skilled and cost-effective R&D outsourcing teams in Central and Eastern Europe.

Investment strategy

We look for startups with scalable business models built on strong fundamentals (unit economics and defensibility) and proven early revenue traction.

We evolve with industry S-curves. This way, most recently, we’ve focused on Mobility, Digital Health, FinTech, PropTech, and AI-enabled Enterprise Software, but we keep an eye across sectors.

We invest in Seed and Series A startups with a typical ticket ranging between $250k and $500k and capacity for follow-on investments. Normally, we do not lead our rounds and co-invest alongside high-profile VC funds.

Our portfolio is largely focused on Europe and North America. We also invest in Ukraine, typically taking the lead position and using our network and expertise to help companies successfully expand into the other European or the US markets.

Initiatives

We feel responsible for supporting local communities in Ukraine and have made nonprofits one of our pillars. Since 2010, TA Ventures has been supporting the efforts of several mission-critical initiatives.

Code Club Ukraine
Code Club is one of the very special and long-lasting relationships for us. It is a volunteer-led initiative with the goal of providing 9 to 11-year-old children with access to coding classes. Code Club Ukraine is part of the global initiative of Code Club World, headquartered in the UK. So far, over 13,000 Code Clubs have been opened in 12 countries. In Ukraine, we have over 790 local clubs in 48 cities with over 9,000 program participants.
WTECH
As a female-led VC firm, we feel strongly about the issues of women in tech. WTECH is the first Ukrainian community for female leaders in the technology business. Founded in 2018, WTECH is an ecosystem for women to explore opportunities for personal and business development as well as an outlet for sharing experiences and knowledge. Supported by over 30 advisers from different business verticals, the community has 1,250+ members.
IDCEE
From 2010 to 2014, TA Ventures was a vital partner of Investor Day Central and Eastern Europe (IDCEE). During this period, IDCEE became one of the top-5 IT-events in Europe and one of the most influential tech conferences in the CEE region. It was an effective communication platform and a bridge between startups from the CEE region and investors from all over the world.
