Ultra Education have worked with thousands of young people in schools and clubs to start their own business. This included helping 200 young people launch startups during the pandemic and subsequent lockdown.
The shift to remote working and online delivery was fully embraced by Ultra, with the team delivering several online bootcamps, creating the first-ever mobile kid’s entrepreneurship tuition app, as well as our first-ever youth online business fair.
