Published on  Updated on  

DroneUA took over the SCT initiative and became industry partners in the agricultural sector. The company will hold a series of Agro Startup Crash Test events and will contribute to the development of the Startup Crash Test Global project.

In Ukraine, the Startup Crash Test initiative is actively developing — This is a non-profit event held to test the strength of business models, marketing strategies, distribution models and other necessary elements of IT startups. The main goal — formation of a technological ecosystem, a community of innovators, entrepreneurs, investors and developers, creation of a network of business contacts and experts who together develop and implement technologies. Recently, the project has been transformed and new industry directions have emerged, among which there is agriculture — Agro SCT.

“ The agricultural sector is now rapidly developing, and we decided to transfer the management of Agro SCT to DroneUA and in particular to its co-founder — Valery Yakovenko. Valery has spoken to us on the content side more than once and provided mentoring support. The DroneUA company is an active player in the agricultural sector, one of the largest innovators in Ukraine — therefore, the decision to establish partnerships and transfer the initiative for holding events came spontaneously and without a doubt”, — says Roman Podenezhny, head of the Startup Crash Test project.

“DroneUA — This is a fairly mature company with active growth. Recent years have created new markets and areas for the application of technology, we have victories, but there are also failures — there is something to share with young projects. And carrying out Agro SCT — This is both helping young innovators and, to some extent, helping ourselves. We are interested in the agricultural innovation market, and since the activities of unmanned technologies depend on several innovative components, we need the existence of an innovative agricultural community where we can find support in a relaxed atmosphere. Agro SCT — This is an excellent tool to develop the agricultural technology community, introduce innovations, increase the prestige of the agricultural sector and help your business. We are very glad that we had this opportunity”, — explains Valery Yakovenko.

The second event will be held on April 21 Agro SCT led by DroneUA. Anyone who has an innovative idea or an already working project can speak at the event. This event is for everyone who wants to receive feedback from business colleagues, potential buyers, find the right employee for the team or investor. Each speaker receives assistance in preparation and mentoring support.
