Starup community in Ukraine(Kiev)

Hello again! I would like to know about Ukrainian starup scene, especially in Kiev.
I heard Kiev is growing as a starup hub recently, so I want to visit and meet people involved in startups. (And then write about them in my blog, if that's possible:) )
So far, I only know ihub, which I found through this platform. Do you know any other places or weekly events that I can attend in English?
Thank you in advance, any help is appreciated.

Sorry, I don't really know anything about that to be honest

i would advice to sign up on Internations website. they have different communities, including start ups/technologies etc, so you can connect with people there and see what activities they organize. it is mostly where locals connect with expats.

other idea - find the facebook groups such as Expat Kyiv, Expat Ukraine etc - there are many of them and that's where people connect too

- Creative quarter
- 1991 startup incubator

I've been working at one start up incubator and lot a lot about inside kitchen, know people and ecosystem.
I can definitely help. Message me here.

Hello

To be frank with you I am not really familiar with this side of Kiev at all. I will ask around and let you know if anything comes up.
