CIVITTA & EasyBusiness Announce Strategic Alliance2018-10-22
Starting from August 2018, CIVITTA and Ukraine’s leading public policy advisory organization EasyBusiness operate in a strategic alliance with a joint mission to continue shaping the economic policy of emerging Ukraine.
CIVITTA joined forces with a strong team in the field of public policy advisory and enhanced its expertise in the international aid and donor market in Ukraine. This alliance is aligned with our expansion strategy across Eastern Europe and serves as a solid foundation for further growth of its Ukrainian office. Andrew Shpakov will also help CIVITTA Kyiv office with business development efforts.
“One of the core missions of CIVITTA is the impact on society through the real impact of our projects. Ukraine is a country with immense potential. We believe that by working together with the team of Easy Business on needed public sector reform and innovation projects in Ukraine we can help unlock more of that potential.” Adam Saulius Vaina, Founder & Managing Partner of CIVITTA.
EasyBusiness will continue focusing on building a better business-enabling environment and implementing free-market ideas in Ukraine, while also having an international exposure to wide track record and access to top-notch experts within Civitta’s network. Andrew Shpakov will stay as Chairman and CEO of EasyBusiness and Dan Pasko, the co-founder of EasyBusiness, will perform an external advisory function.
“Through this strategic alliance with CIVITTA, our team significantly enhanced its institutional capacity. We are confident that this step will be crucial for the further development of both EasyBusiness and Civitta towards making a lasting impact in a new post-revolutionary Ukraine.” Andrew Shpakov, Chairman and CEO of EasyBusiness.
EasyBusiness, Ukraine’s leading public policy advisory organization, was established in 2014 by advisors on deregulation to the Economy Minister. EasyBusiness’ mission is to build a better business-enabling environment in Ukraine through its Business Climate Improvement and Free Markets Development programs. Since 2014, EasyBusiness contributed to the improvement of Ukraine’s positions in the Doing Business Ranking (from 112 to 76) and helped the Government to develop and execute a number of deregulation projects.
