“Over 300 thousand jobs will be created in Ukraine due to the eRobota project,” said Yuliia Svyrydenko

The implementation of government grant programs of the eRobota project will make it possible to create more than 300 thousand new jobs in Ukraine. This was reported by Yuliia Svyrydenko, First Vice Prime Minister – Minister of Economy of Ukraine. 

“The government launched a number of grant programs as a powerful tool for supporting small and medium-sized enterprises. Any entrepreneur willing to develop their business or start a new one can receive non-refundable aid from the state. This will also stimulate the creation of jobs that Ukrainians need today. We expect that the implementation of all grant programs within the framework of the eRobota project will provide an opportunity to create more than 300 thousand new jobs,” said Yuliia Svyrydenko. 

According to her, Ukrainians show a high interest in grant programs. To date, about 10 thousand people have applied for grants. The majority of applications, namely 8.5 thousand are for a micro-grant to start or develop own business. 

We remind you that the eRobota project includes 6 grant programs aimed at stimulating entrepreneurship. In particular, these are micro-grant programs for opening or developing one’s own business, grants for the establishment and development of processing enterprises, arranging a garden and viticulture, greenhouse farming, support for IT startups and starting in IT.  

The first 227 winners of the micro-grant program have already received the money in their accounts. The total amount of money transferred to them is UAH 52.7 million.
