Ukrainian citizens founded 10,207 companies in Poland in the first three quarters of this year, reports the Polish Institute of Economics (PIE). There has been a dynamic upward trend since the beginning of the war in Ukraine. While only 188 companies were founded in January, as many as 2273 companies were already registered by Ukrainians in September. According to PIE data, almost every tenth company in Poland belongs to Ukrainian citizens.
Surprising and somewhat irritating against the background of the Ukrainian mobilisation requirements to take part in the fighting is the high proportion of men as company founders. Almost 60 percent of Ukrainian company founders are men. The main areas in which they set up companies are the auxiliary construction trade and the transport industry. By contrast, Ukrainian women founded almost 4,200 companies by the end of September. Almost 90 per cent of these companies were established in the beauty and hair services industry.
