Win of the Week: Has Upstream helped you professionally? Share your Upstream win with Alex/Sarah to get featured (& get a special Upstream gift!)

Can we count the entire last week as a win? On Wednesday, we had our web launch + fundraise announcement.

We were blown away by the community support & press coverage. Here is a round-up of what was written: Our blog, TechCrunch, Axios, Business Insider, Forbes, Yahoo Finance, ReadWrite, and Refresh Miami.

New Feature Alert: New Website

We redid our website — check out! You may even find your own testimonial (email us yours if you would like to add one!) We’re super excited to further build out the website with more educational resources, FAQs, and a full list of past speakers & events for browsing.

Another win, if you’ve ever Google searched Upstream in the past, you may have come across several oil & gas companies. With the press from our launch last week, we’ve now jumped the ranks of SEO to be the top search result!
