In July 2021, Horizon Capital invested in Avrora, a Ukraine-based dollar store chain operating over 800 locations, with products ranging from home and hygiene supplies to food and clothing.

Horizon Capital played an instrumental role in Avrora’s crisis management following the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022. Over 100 of Avrora’s 863 stores were destroyed or closed in areas occupied by Russian forces. The company helped evacuate employees from highly affected areas like Kharkiv, the country’s second-largest city, which has been a major target for Russian air and missile strikes.
