Why we make it a combo
Money + Acceleration?

We know that in the initial stages, funding isn't the primary obstacle to startup growth. Founders have way more specific bottlenecks—like inability to define their ideal customer profile or calculate correctly unit economy.

In our accelerator, we guide founders to identify and address their unique pain points. Additionally, we handle bureaucratic tasks like company registration, payment integration, and equity distribution, standing by you not only in celebrations but also in day-to-day challenges. Like true partners do.

We’re keeping it_focused

With up to 15 teams per batch, we ensure more time and attention to the needs of each founder. As a result, we are increasing their speed, confidence, and focus.

See the proofs.

Alexander Pushin

founder of Stry ↗
ex-R&D Team Lead at Prisma Labs

What stands out at ULTRA’s accelerator for me the most is how they blend expert and structural support. During the weekly tracking session, you get your focus and action plan, while with a mentor, you can receive help with specific issues you are facing now, structure for conducting marketing experiments or payment integration. It's the perfect mix for navigating the complexities of the life of a startup founder.

With enthusiasm around self-realization and positive change in the world, you can forget to check the market reality. ULTRA helps me to focus on what’s important for making my idea a sustainable business, like working on PMF and unit economy.
