In a conversation with an expert, the hosts touched upon such important topics as investing, current trends in the development of start-ups in a war, as well as what businesses should do to survive in times of crisis.

“In wartime, there are a lot more really important things that people are willing to pay a lot for.”

The expert emphasized that during the war it is much more important to find not an investor for a new business, but a buyer who is ready to pay for the proposed product.

The main topics of the interview with Semyon were:

  • Adapting to the market and change of direction during the war.
  • The expediency of starting a new business during the war.
  • The most promising industries for launching new projects.
  • Sources of funding for businesses in times of war.
  • Qualities that distinguish a truly promising entrepreneur from the others.
  • One Way Ventures initiatives to help Ukraine, the Armed Forces, or refugees.
  • Checklist of things that a novice startupper needs to implement.
