Ideas for Starting a Microbusiness in Ukraine

In 2015 our team was contracted by UNDP Ukraine to study business opportunities for starting micro-businesses in Central and Eastern Ukraine. PPV Knowledge Networks analyzed main industries in 8 regions of Ukraine (Central and Eastern Ukraine). Based on statistical data and expert interviews in these regions we have identified 10 market niches suitable for starting a micro-business within the next 3-5 years. The project has resulted in a final report with the description of 10 market niches and 30 business models.
