In March Effa and SPOKK will go to SXSW 2022 in Austin, USA. There they will represent Ukraine at Ukrainian Corner.

Out of 60 startups, the USAID Competitive Economy Ukraine program, together with the Ukrainian Startup Fund, Startup Grind Kyiv and Western NIS Enterprise Fund selected only 6 that will have that opportunity. Among them:

- FRAMIORE, an eco-friendly women's clothing brand with its manufacturing and textile R&D centre;
- FlashBeats - a mobile app capable of synchronizing the flashlights of thousands of smartphones to create light shows at sports/music events and home parties;
- deep3dstudio - development of photorealistic characters based on 3D scanning of a person's head and entire body;
- Proof-of-Love - a blockchain-based fashion meta-universe focused on WEB3.

The startup Effa, which makes eco-friendly toothbrushes and other personal care products, became a UNIT.City resident in 2021. The first product prototype was also created at the Innovation Park.

At the same time, the SPOKK team went through the NEST Bootcamp acceleration program. The project specializes in smartphone insurance with affordable microinsurance products and a full range of services online.
