Upstart - individual funding - kickstarter for people

Posted on by Brandon Klein

 Ever meet someone so inspiring that you wanted to invest in them?
With Upstart, you can - starting at just $100. We’ve created a platform that makes investing in people fast and simple. Upstart allows you to back promising college graduates for a small share of their future income. Our goal is to provide capital to individuals who have the potential to have a great impact on their communities and on the world, while generating a meaningful return to you. You can think of Upstart as “pre-seed” funding, that enables individuals to invest in themselves and build rewarding careers.
