Ultimatum Inc: the breakout startup at Collision Conference
Lots of people respond to current events on social media - but it rarely gains traction. How can we turn another #MeToo post into real action? Ultimatum, Inc. co-founders Matthew McCabe, Steve Regester, and Matt Burdan are here do exactly that, empowering people to have a positive impact on the world.
Annie Jalota, Marketing Manager for Ultimatum, points out some of the problems customers are facing: "The non-profit fundraising space hasn’t changed much. Governments are slow to take action, and it requires a lot of effort for individuals to respond to current events - they have to do so issue by issue, one at a time. Ultimatum brings speed and efficiency to this fractured space, turning everyday engagement on social media into real action."
The newly-launched beta website called Ultimatum enables their users take action on political and social issues by using event-based donations to non-profits. For example, users could support the #MeToo movement by making a donation to the National Organization for Women every time Tony Robbins posts on Twitter.
Co-founder and CEO Matthew McCabe says the element of immediacy is a key component of what makes Ultimatum unique. “I’ve often thought to myself ‘I want to make a difference,’ but don’t know where to start. With Ultimatum, issues are already linked to reputable organizations, making it easy to take meaningful action. Users only need to take action once - after that, they can have continuous impact in real time.” Since community support is activated as events happen, organizations can focus more on helping people and less on fundraising activity.
Ultimatum launched their private beta in April 2018. The website will be available to the public at Collision Conference in New Orleans on May 1, 2018.
Ultimatum is a website that empowers users to take positive action in support of non-profits, advocacy groups, and more. Community support is activated in real-time and in response to real-world events including social media activity, news, and protests.
Ultimatum is operated out of San Francisco, California. The company was founded by Matthew McCabe, Steve Regester, and Matt Burdan. They are entrepreneurs who bring over a 25 years of experience from companies including Amazon, Whole Foods Market, Lookout Mobile Security, Synack, and Mulesoft. Their advisors specialize in growing startups, fundraising platforms for non-profits, product management, and social media marketing.
