We are thrilled to announce that the Google for Startups Ukraine Support Fund named the first 9 startups to receive an award in 2024 – and Carbominer is on the list!

Google launched the Ukraine Support Fund in 2022 as a response to Russia’s brutal military aggression and in solidarity with the vibrant Ukrainian startup ecosystem. This first fund supported 58 Ukrainian startups from various domains. 

Aside from the award funding, the Ukraine Support Fund provides mentoring support from Google experts, and access to the lively Google for Startups community. These measures are intended to help Ukrainian entrepreneurs develop their startups in the face of war and lay the groundwork for post-war economic recovery. 

This second wave of support from Google for Startups for Ukrainian entrepreneurs was launched in February 2024. Selected Ukrainian startups will be announced gradually over two years and will receive non-dilutive cash awards, as well as Google mentoring and product support and Google Cloud credits.

The whole list of startups awarded in this batch:

– Ailand Systems – smart autonomous drones for mine detection.
– BazaIT – an all-in-one hiring solution for tech companies.
– Carbominer – a climate startup that has developed a new technology for capturing CO₂ from the open air.
– Clearly – a technology platform that effectively connects psychotherapists with clients.
– Eddy – a comprehensive digital space for the needs of teachers, parents and students.
– Eventmate – an all-in-one application that allows event organisers to engage their audience using popular messengers.
– Natively – a simple way to turn any website into an iOS/Android app.
– Spendbase – a platform for optimising companies’ spending on software development, cloud and corporate cards.
– Uspacy – a single digital workspace for SMEs that simplifies communication, collaboration and CRM.

Notably, Carbominer is not the first Climatetech and Agtech startup to win award from Ukraine Support Fund. According to Google Keyword blog, previous awardees included startups working in Agtech, Sustainability and Impact domains such as Agrolabs, Releaf Paper, Esper Bionics, Receptor AI, and SorbiForce.

This is not the first non-dilutive funding that Carbominer has been awarded with – just recently we announced winning the EIC Accelerator grant funding of €1.5M to accelerate our growth.
