With the support of its investors, GF will provide bridge financing and technical support to a select group of Ukrainian companies and their employees, who have been forced to relocate or disperse across the region and need to regroup and centralize their operations for an indeterminate period in the business-friendly environments of Tbilisi and/or Yerevan

About Georgia

Georgia (or as natives call it “Sakartvelo”) is located at the crossroads of Western Asia and Eastern Europe, it is bounded to the west by the Black Sea, to the north by Russia, to the south by Turkey and Armenia, and to the southeast by Azerbaijan. Georgia declared independence in 1991 at the disintegration of the Soviet Union. The country is geographically well-positioned as a gateway between Europe and Asia, it is easily accessible to the most major European, Central Asian, and Middle Eastern markets. Due to its geographical location, Georgia already has the most preconditions to become a regional financial and business center, this is matched with the ambitious objective of the country itself, which is to become one of the most reliable investment destinations globally.
