Startup Mantis Analytics has raised $50,000 from the Ukrainian fund ZAS Ventures

Mantis Analytics is a platform based on artificial intelligence that allows you to monitor and analyze the information space, detecting manipulations and fakes.

The company is a member of the Lviv IT cluster. It was created after the beginning of the full-scale invasion of the Russian Federation by Ostap Vykhopen, Maksym Tereshchenko and Anton Tarasyuk. Initially, the startup was developed with its own funds, and in 2023 it was also possible to receive $25,000 from Brave1 to improve the platform. Currently, the service cooperates with the NSDC and other state institutions.

The investor was the ZAS Ventures fund, which was also founded by Ukrainians Andriy Zinchuk and Artem Volkhonsky last fall. The company is incorporated in the USA with offices in San Francisco and Kyiv. In addition to Ukrainians, ZAS Ventures also has American partners.

In 2024, the ZAS Ventures fund plans to invest in 30 Ukrainian startups with a check of up to $100,000 at the pre-seed stage and, in the future, help them raise a seed round a year later.
