KIRILL MAZUR
CEO & Founder at Center42
Corporate innovations have become trendlines globally: US and EU corporations create their own funds, invest in startups, launch joint pilot projects and new business products with startups.

Organizations around the world form their own innovative agenda, launch internal transformations, seek out for external innovation and create innovative projects.

In Ukraine, the corporate innovation industry is at an early stage of its development, and we want to accelerate the growth of this market.

The expertise of the Center42 Innovation Agency is all about finding startups, finding new business products, organizing startup projects and competitions, boosting innovative employer brand and corporate brand of our partners.
