The key task of the foundation is to help young people, first of all, unleash their potential in Ukraine. The new modern style of K.FUND puts the brand in the coordinate system of this audience,” commented Dmytro Zverev, Chief Reputation Officer  at UFuture Holding Company, Vice President of K.FUND.

Under her leadership, the SME School covered 15 Ukrainian cities, and more than 1,000 entrepreneurs graduated from it. Lidia will replace Fedor Logvinenko, who decided to focus on developing his own business.
“The main goal of K.Fund is to support creative industries through education and personal development. As President of the foundation, I plan to develop and deepen cooperation with international and Ukrainian partners for the development of Ukraine’s economy, as well as to implement educational projects aimed at developing people of all ages, including schoolchildren. Of course, the development of small and medium enterprises will be one of my priorities,” said Lidia Pashchuk.
The new president of K.Fund is a candidate of economic sciences, a certified lecturer at the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) and an associate professor at the Department of International Economics and Marketing at Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, consultant to international organizations. Lidia has more than 15 years of experience in leading international and domestic companies and institutions, in particular, in the World Bank. As a consultant, marketer and manager, she participated in the development and implementation of projects for the assessment and restructuring of enterprises, business reorganization, strategic marketing, communication policy, creation and promotion of new brands, research of local and international markets, etc.
