Super Ultra to accelerate Brinc’s ZK Advancer startups by helping them quickly build a minimum viable product which they can use to raise further funds
As mentors in Brinc’s ZK Advancer accelerator, Super Ultra will provide insight on developing Web3 games, gamification of existing ideas, and implementation of Web3 characteristics
Hong Kong, [February 7, 2023] Hong Kong-based game studio Super Ultra, and Brinc, a leading global venture accelerator, have joined forces to provide startups on the ZK Advancer course with specialist knowledge on gamification and development of games with Web3 characteristics.
Super Ultra has committed to act as a mentor to cohort members whose products involve elements of game development or are focused on building Web3 games. In this role, Super Ultra will help said startups shape plans for their minimum viable products (MVPs) that will meet real-world expectations.
At the same time, Super Ultra has also agreed to develop MVP packages as an option for startups in the program. While, in the long term, companies should establish in-house teams, this early-stage aid will help them catalyze their abilities in this integral field where demand for talent is far beyond the available supply. Super Ultra’s experience in Web3 game production and all facets of blockchain and smart contract development provides a way for pre-seed startups to quickly build a reliable MVP upon which they can use to raise further funds.
ZK Advancer identifies and mentors startups in the blockchain and Web3 space driving digitalization in culture, arts, entertainment, gaming, financial services, data management, decentralized finance (DeFi) and other related fields. The program also helps those looking to embed Web3 principles into their core business. Startups on the ZK Advancer program receive training, mentorship, access to a wide network of Web3 partners, and investment; alongside assistance in product refinement, token design, go-to-market planning, Web3 strategy, and fundraising support.
Phil Ingram, Co-Founder, and CEO of Super Ultra, said:
I am thrilled to work with Brinc and for Super Ultra to play a part in ZK Advancer, one of the top accelerator programs in the world for Web3 startups. The variety of entrepreneurs and their ideas in their latest cohort is inspiring, and it is a privilege to be able to pay it forward by sharing some of the lessons we have learned on our journey.
Guillermo Ginesta, Managing Director of Brinc, Hong Kong, said:
We are delighted to welcome Super Ultra to our roster of Accelerator partners. By joining forces with Super Ultra, we are able to provide our portfolio companies with access to a wealth of expertise and resources, which will help them to develop and expand globally. The gaming industry is one of the fastest-growing in the world and we are excited to be a part of it to empower a more distributed digital world. We believe this partnership will be a great opportunity to help our startups to grow and succeed.
