We are very proud of our alumni startup Ultimate.ai from Batch #9 which just raised $6.5M in its recent funding round.

The round is led by the company’s existing investors, HV Holtzbrinck Ventures and Maki.vc. In addition, the EU granted research funding as part of Horizon 2020, a programme committed to backing Europe’s leading deep technology businesses.

ultimate.ai’s European founding story has given it a technical advantage in the market, attracting EU interest and prompting existing investors to double down. Founded in Finland, the business faced a defining challenge: there was no AI technology capable of handling the complex Finnish language. Leveraging recent breakthroughs in deep learning, the founders built the leading fully-language agnostic AI platform for customer service. Today ultimate.ai provides its multilingual customer service automation to multinational enterprises including Telia, ADAC and Finnair.

Congrats to the whole team!
