Hey everyone -

Hope you all had a restful Thanksgiving!

…And somehow, it’s December tomorrow! We aren’t slowing down into the holiday season. Very excited to share we are releasing a new event format on Wednesday, perfect for all your (virtual) holiday party needs. Look out for a blog post outlining what’s new and a link to sign up your company.

New Series Alert: As you know, the Upstream network is filled with experts, so we are tapping into our collective knowledge with a new event series called “Everything You Need To Know About…”

We’ve scheduled the first three:

(1) Getting Your Company Legally Up and Running with Zach Levin on Dec 1st at 12pm ET

(2) Getting The .Com For Your Startup with Eric Friedman on Dec 9th at 1pm ET

(3) Comms For Your Startup with Carolyn Penner on Dec 10th at 1pm ET

If you have any topic ideas or know any experts — let me know! We are looking to do 1–3 a week on topics people care to learn more about.
