Investing time and money to help entrepreneurs grow their businesses
What We Do
We partner with entrepreneurs by offering investment of time and money to support their business and personal goals.
FLEXIBLE DEAL STRUCTURES
We are open to minority or majority investment positions, and our investors do not have a defined time horizon requirement. This allows us to view every investment as a unique partnership.
TIME AND MONEY
We know how difficult it is to manage a small, growing business, so we work to help our partners by rolling up our sleeves and spending time helping. Whether that’s launching a new digital marketing channel or building an inside sales team, we want our entrepreneurs to feel supported financially and operationally.
Upside brings strategy, finance, digital marketing, branding, and salesforce development skill sets to bear, enabling growth and allowing our entrepreneurs to focus on the things they do best. Beyond this, our investors and advisors have broad industry experience on offer to help our businesses.

What We Believe
Time adds value
We do more than just financing. We want to roll up our sleeves, get to know our partners, and help do the actual work of scaling the business.
Mature businesses can grow
For us, it’s not just about flashy new ventures. We believe there are growth opportunities for businesses of all kinds, even in slower growth industries.
Flexibility is key
We aren’t commited to any specific timeline or return profile for our investments. If we need to play the long, slow game, we will happily do that.
