Liki24.com is a platform for searching, comparing prices, and quick or scheduled delivery of drugs, which operates in Ukraine and European countries (Romania and Poland). The company was founded in 2017 by Anton Avrinski together with his colleagues. Since then, Liki24.com has received investments from leading venture capital funds in Ukraine - Horizon Capital, Flyer One Ventures, TA Ventures, as well as several business angels for a total amount of nearly $6 million.
SID Venture Partners invested in the company considering an experienced team and with confidence in its future expansion into global markets. Liki24.com is changing the pharmaceutical market, which is worth up to $20 billion in Ukraine, Poland, Ukraine and Romania alone, and up to $300 billion per year in Europe as a whole.
"I am happy to cooperate with the Fund and thank SID for its support of Ukrainian business and investments in its development and expansion in European markets," comments Anton Avrinski, 38, CEO and head of Liki24.com.
During the past few months, the company also launched several volunteer initiatives. Among them: a recently launched platform offering pharma products at a 50% discount for Ukrainians and a logistics center set up to receive and sort drugs donated for humanitarian aid to Ukrainians by partners from the EU and the United States. Over 40,000 people have already received such aid.
"Liki24.com is a project that has already proved its ability to develop in Ukraine and has reached a leading position in the local market. Amid recent events, now they have even more motivation to achieve success in Europe. We believe in their prospects as well as in technological and marketing expertise", commented Dmitry Vartanyan, General Managing Partner at SID Venture Partners.
