Upward Startups gain access to structured sessions with Challenge Partners, designed to identify and explore the most viable use cases and/ or proofs of concept as a basis for commercialization.
Upward provides guidance, templates, and trainings for use case/POC creation, i.e. overall design, key outcomes, installation planning, and measurement of Partner KPIs. We coordinate partner feedback and key issue resolution.
Upon coming to a city to launch challenge partnerships, startups are provided with inspiring workspace and living accommodations in a prime location for accessing localized POC locations, clients, and co-development partners.
After the first successful challenge with an Enterprise Partner, Upward continues to foster new relationships between our Network Startups and a vast roster of Enterprise and Advisory Partners across the U.S.
