You may have heard about the thriving tech start-up scene in New York, Chicago, Houston or even Tel Aviv, but I recently learned that Ukraine also has a fantastic tech scene.

MacPaw is a team of like-minded techies, who live in the heart of Ukraine and create apps loved by users everywhere. As true geeks, we never stop exploring tech and looking for ways to make your Mac life better. Not because they have to, but because it’s fun.

You may remember that back on episode 199 I interviewed the CEO of Setapp which was made by MacPaw and offers Netflix for Mac Apps in an alternative app store. As I became intrigued about the tech start-up scene in Ukraine, I realised that I had a contact out there too.

Fast forward a few months and I was able to convince Julia Petryk, the PR & Media Manager over at MacPaw Inc to come on the show and tell us all about how technology is transforming life in Ukraine.

I chat to Julia about all things tech including the story behind Ukranian startups such as Grammarly and Setapp. We also explore how Tekserve’s Apple artifacts have ended up in a Ukrainian museum.
