Ukraine-focused GP Horizon Capital is acquiring a minority stake in Kiev-based Intellias, a provider of software development services.
With the fresh capital, Intellias plans to increase its client service capabilities by expanding its delivery hubs beyond Lviv, having established a presence in Kyiv and Odesa. The company, co-founded by Vitaly Sedler and Michael Puzrakov, continues to be founder-run.

Founded in 2002 and headquartered in Lviv, Intellias is a supplier of software development services with a core delivery base in Ukraine. It employs a staff of 1,100.
