UpStart empowers leaders to dream, build, and grow bold initiatives that enhance the vitality of Jewish Life.
UpStart was founded fifteen years ago with a sole focus: to accelerate the success of social entrepreneurs fueling a renaissance in Jewish life. Since then, we have invested in 132 ventures and their leaders, while cultivating an ecosystem of institutional leaders and funders committed to Jewish community change. We are excited to be actively implementing a new strategic plan that will put social entrepreneurs at the center of everything we do. Our vision is that Jewish communities will be thriving hubs of innovation, building a more just, vibrant, and inclusive future.
