There were 87 investment deals with Ukrainian innovative companies in 2016 , which is 32% more than in 2015 - such a data was presented by the Ukrainian Venture Capital and Private Equity Association (UVCA) in its annual market overview. The overview has gathered information on venture, private equity and angel investment deals - their total volume is accounted in 88 mln. USD in 2016. The amount of investments over the past 5 years growth to 400 mln. At the same time, the volume of investment deals decreased on 33% since 2015 (including 13 undisclosed deals), but still is higher than in 2014 at 125%. The reason is few deals in 2015 amounted in dozens of millions.
Distinguishing feature of the market in 2016 is the prevalence of seed-stage deals. Thereby among all deals 73 were made at the seed-stage with the average amount of ticket over 500K USD. So we can expect that these initially invested companies will attract bigger investments in future.
The average ticket amount (on all stages) has grown up to 1M USD in 2016.
