Startups For Ukraine

On February 24, 2022, the world has changed tremendously as, since then, a war has been started by the Russian aggressor. This is a situation that nobody would have imagined in their worst nightmare. It is happening in Europe where we all believed that a massive war and war crimes would never happen again after World War II.

Hundreds of thousands of people have become refugees.

Together with our startup community across Europe, some investors and Startup Salzburg, we launched the initiative STARTUPS FOR UKRAINE, delivering medical supplies to Lviv, Western Ukraine, and bringing refugees to Austria on our way back.

What Startups For Ukraine is about

Collection of donations

We collected both medical supplies and monetary donations. 100% of the donated money was used for the purchase of medical supplies and the transport.

Drop-off location for medical supplies 
Authentic Vision Headquarter
Green Tower
Ludwig-Bieringer Platz 1
A-5071 Himmelreich

Delivery of medical supplies

We regularly drove to the Polish-Ukrainian border with minivans and trucks to deliver the medical supplies to our contact who took them to Lviv, Ukraine.

Medical supply delivery
Cooperation with Palianytsia Charity Initiative and our SEA Circle member Anatolii Maslov who helped to distribute the medical supplies in Lviv, Ukraine.

Support of Ukrainian refugees

On our way back from the Polish-Ukrainian border, we brought refugees to Salzburg, arranged registration and safe homes for them.

Ongoing on-site support
Our team offered ongoing support in Salzburg, e.g. with registration processes, the search for job opportunities, language courses and study programs.

Study opportunity in Salzburg

In cooperation with the University of Applied Sciences Salzburg (Fachhochschule Salzburg), we offer Ukrainian students the opportunity to study in Salzburg. 

Services include:
Easy application process
No tuition fees
