Hey everyone -

I hope you all stayed safe this past week. We are living in some wild times. Grateful for this community and how you are all supporting each other. Personally, I know I could use the human connection more than ever. Hope to see you at an event this week!

We’d love your input on future Upstream events. Who is someone you’d love to hear as a guest speaker? Is there a topic you want discussed? Send us recommendations!

On a celebratory note, today we welcome employee #6, Alexandria Pugia, to Upstream! Alexandria is joining Michael & Zhanna on the dev team and we couldn’t be more excited. We’d love it if you gave her a warm welcome! You can meet Alexandria on one of her office hours here.
