EU and UNDP launch new online courses for Ukrainian enterprises displaced by war


The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), with the financial support of the European Union, has presented five new online training courses for micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) displaced by war.

Training will be available on the ‘Start.Business’ online platform, where entrepreneurs will learn what is needed to create and scale up their businesses, how to minimise possible risks, develop e-commerce, and many other practical aspects.

The learning platform provides training on the following topics:

  • Business in the field of architecture;
  • Business in the field of construction; 
  • Business in e-commerce: Business in the fashion industry;
  • Cooperation of MSMEs with Chambers of Commerce and Industry.

The platform is aimed both at newcomers who are interested in entrepreneurship but don’t know where to start, and at those who already have their own business and are looking for practical advice on growing it.

According to the UNDP, more than a third of Ukraine’s businesses have suspended operations due to the Russian full-scale invasion.
