Why SaaS and why we decided to do this study?
In Ukraine, companies with SaaS (subscription) business model have one of the fastest growth. And such companies are most interested for global investors and customers because they can sell globally but place R&D in Ukraine. Grammarly is a really great Ukrainian example of SaaS company.

Gartner predicts that this year the global SaaS market will expand to $95 billion and will have 20% annual growth in the next few years.

So we are happy to present the first of its kind research of the research of Ukrainian SaaS companies, which was created by combined efforts of SaaS Nation, UNIT.City Innovation Park and Center42 Innovation Agency teams.
