About upvising

Accelerators and incubators are state-of-the-art in today's startup ecosystem when it comes to supporting early-stage startups and first-time founders. But more than 7.000 accelerators and incubators make the startup ecosystem highly fragmented, not transparent (no standards for services and pricing) and highly inefficient (only significantly less than 10% of all startups get access to accelerators)

Upvising aims to democratize access to know-how, network and support for ALL early-stage startups leaving the selection of the best startups to the market.

Upvising's founders have combined more than 70 years of relevant experience in the startup ecosystem. We have been through it all by ourselves from building and scaling-up successful startups, to IPO and being executive and non-executive directors of listed companies, to being early-stage investors, board advisors and startup mentors.

The founders

We are a team of successful entrepreneurs with a combined track record of more than 50 years in the digital space.

We love to help entrepreneurs develop new products and ideas. But unfortunately, we cannot help all of them. This was the initial reason to build upvising – we want every startup to get the best-possible advice.
