Meet the 4 Startups Selected for the First UpRamp™ Fiterator™ Program
UpRamp’s Fiterator launched earlier this year to offer startups an accelerator that offers actual deals, not just demo days. There are many programs out there that bring advice and introductions to the table… and sometimes even investment capital. But not always. Fiterator is different – it is more of a graduate program for later stage startups who already have a product, and are now looking for that elusive product/market fit in the global cable/broadband industry.
When we put out the call for applications to our first Fiterator session, we had a great response from so many awesome startups out there in the world. It was tough to narrow it down to just four, but it is critical for us to have a small number in each cohort to ensure that laser focus is placed on each company in order to make the most of our time together.
Without further ado, here are the four companies participating in the first Fiterator Summer Session.
