The war in Ukraine has impacted everyone in the country — and in the world. Because of Russia’s invasion, millions of people had to move away, leaving their homes, cities, and work behind.
The budding tech ecosystem of Ukriane has been affected as well. The country’s startups definitely took a blow initially — but have seemingly managed to not only stay afloat, but also to fight back and help their country’s war effort.
Silicon Canals has partnered with the Blockquote Show to present first-hand accounts of Ukrainian startup founders who keep powering through with all their talent, perseverance, and optimism. During and after the live stream, we will be raising funds to help Ukraine in the time of war. Look for the QR code in the corner, scan it with your phone and donate if you can.
In this episode, watch a conversation with Alex Serdiuk, CEO and co-founder of the Emmy-winning Ukrainian startup Respeecher. If you’ve seen The Mandalorian or The Book of Boba Fett, then you’ve heard some of the results of the company’s work. Respeecher’s technology allows to clone anyone’s voice to use in film production, gaming, and much more.
Tune in to hear Alex talking about about AI ethics, working on Obi-Wan Kenobi from bomb shelters, and a healthcare initiative that helps people with throat cancer hear their voice again with the help of AI. Join the conversation live to ask your questions!
