We are excited to welcome Sarah Wood to the Upstream team!

She will be the Head of Growth & Community, leading up all things community at Upstream.

Sarah is joining us from Goldman Sachs, where she worked in Firmwide Strategy (looking at how GS should build, buy, invest & partner), on the trading floor (on a multi-asset sales team), and as a Launch With GS Ambassador ($500mm investment strategy rooted in diversity as a business imperative). During her time at Goldman, she was energized thinking about how to build an ecosystem that supported diverse founders and fund managers and helped form the firm’s first-ever Mindfulness Community.

The moment we met Sarah we knew she was special and can’t wait for you all to meet her. We got connected to her after she attended an Upstream Event (with guest speaker Kirsten Green — thanks Kirsten!) in early October and things moved quickly after that. Her first day is today!

You should check out her TedX talk about being a Joy Soldier.

Sarah has already created a community called Joy Soldiers. Click here if you want to request access to it.

If you want to reach her, you can find her on Twitter or LinkedIn.

If you are interested in joining our team — please email us at hi@upstreamapp.com. We are currently interviewing for a Full Stack Engineer to join the team.
