A number of Ukrainian start-ups will have the chance to go to IDCEE, Eastern Europe’s largest annual non-profit tech conference, after the Tech4Ukraine scholarship fund raised $22,320.

The Tech4Ukraine campaign was started by TubeMogul and is a coalition of tech CEOs in support of the Ukraine's IT workforce during the ongoing unrest in the country.

It aims to bring attention to the country's 4,000 IT outsourcing companies and $2bn software development industry which is under threat as the war continues.

Brett Wilson, CEO at TubeMogul said: "The tech workforce in the Ukraine is vast and full of talent, so while we can’t change the situation out there, we can help support this vibrant industry. It’s great to see so many CEOs coming on board and to have raised 893 per cent of our target as this means we can help more start-ups than we ever envisioned get access to the networks that will help them grow”.

At The Drum Live earlier this year, ITN created a short video exploring the Tech4Ukraine campaign.

Interviews included TubeMogul as well as Starcom MediaVest London’s co-CEO, Pippa Glucklich and Jilly Cross, co-founder of Bravand.
