In early February, the first wave of applications for microgrants for entrepreneurs under the government program eRobota started in 2023.
Acceptance of documents for the first wave will last until February 12. In total, this year there will be 20 waves, which will last until the end of November.
Applications for a grant to start or develop your own business should be submitted through the Diia portal.
The “Grant for Your Own Business” project was launched on July 1 last year and is one of the eRobota programs. Under this program, you can get a microgrant for starting or developing a business in the amount of UAH 50 to 250 thousand. A prerequisite is the creation of new jobs within 6 months of receiving the funds.
According to the State Employment Center, over 3.3 thousand people received funds to start or expand an existing business in 6 months of 2022.
