The opening of the physical space of the Business Incubator took place in Kremenchuk. From now on, the city community has a great opportunity to develop their business.

From now on, enterprising, creative, and proactive citizens of Kremenchuk have a new space.

Experience exchange, education, business workshops, short meetings, mentors, roundtables, grant competitions, co-financing, looking for investors – all this will be carried out by the business incubator from now on.

Over the past year, business incubators have begun to appear in Ukrainian cities, creating a favorable environment for business development.
