up accelerator applications
August 19, 2014
We’re looking for businesses with a prototype, early stage product, service or platform with the potential to grow significantly. And ideally, to disrupt the market they’re aimed at.
Vital to these businesses are the people behind them. We’re looking for highly motivated teams with a strong set of core values and attitudes.
Most accelerators look for teams of two or three people, with at least two coders. We’re different: we want business, technical and creative skills in each of the businesses we build. So it doesn’t matter which of these you represent, because as long as your idea is great, we’ll help you build your team.
UP demands genuine commitment in terms of time and energy. Its ethos is one of cooperation and collaboration, as well as competition. It will require determination, grit, courage and sheer hard work.
The UP team, investors and partners are fully committed to this approach. We want entrepreneurs who are as determined as we are to succeed.
