Sector X is an acceleration platform based in Unit.city, the fast growing innovation park in the center of Kyiv, Ukraine.

Our mission is helping Ukrainian and Eastern European startups build global companies with sales in the Western markets while keeping the development centers in Ukraine. Our partner – Unit.city – comes handy, providing world-class work spaces and access to the largest community of developers and partner projects.

We do this by offering startups the best laser-focused acceleration programs, by teaching and developing the investor community around the accelerator, and by sharing and spreading our best practices and knowledge via the “Knowledge base” initiative.

Our acceleration programs will be a perfect fit for highly motivated teams who need very concrete results in the USA and Europe, and who are looking to keep their development centers in Ukraine.

The core principles of the programs are laser-sharp focus and hitting goals, ongoing analytics, the most up-to-date content that you can use here and now, cooperation with practicing experts from different industries, relevant advice from entrepreneurs, and partnerships with corporations who understand why they need startups.

New York Program Finish
04.07.2019
Recently, our selected startups returned from a two-month acceleration program run by Sector X in New York. During the accelerator, the teams followed a highly intense schedule that included workshops, local startup community events, such as Tech Day, and meetings with investors. This diverse program allowed them to establish important partnerships and get traction in the U.S. market. Among other victories, a medical startup AssayMe competed with the best American teams and won the third place at one of the largest healthtech events in NY. Having been chosen for the MedTech accelerator in Kentucky, they will now proceed to develop their product. The teams also met with key ecosystem figures, including founder of 37 Angels and Chief Innovation Officer at Columbia Business School Angela Lee. Sector X has also hosted a side event at the UN Forum on Science, Technology and Innovation. As our startups continue to grow, Sector X is now developing its next project in a fresh, new format. Stay tuned!
