About

WannaBiz is an angel seed fund, focused on seed stage global projects in ad tech and SaaS.

 

Founded in 2012 by three young IT-entrepreneurs in Odessa, WannaBiz became one of the most active startup incubators in Ukraine. The founders were driven by the goal to form and to develop the ecosystem of IT-entrepreneurship in Ukraine. During the first 3 years WannaBiz raised 11 startups through the acceleration program, 7 of them raised investments, 6 projects achieved the next funding round. In September 2015 WannaBiz transformed into a seed fund, virtually stopping its incubation activity.

 

Our goal is to build and develop global projects in line with the competitive market.
