Connecting capital with creative people
who make a profit and make a difference

Upstart Co-Lab connects impact investing to fashion, food, film & TV, video games and other creative industries to drive deep social and environmental impact, commercial viability and an innovative edge.

Through the creative economy, investors can back BIPOC and women entrepreneurs; create on-ramps to economic opportunity in low-income communities; grow quality 21st-century jobs for middle skill workers; connect ethical, sustainable supply chains with educated consumers; and bring diverse, culturally-authentic stories to the big and small screen.
