Investors

Upstart Co-Lab is building a coalition of impact investors who understand the power of art, design, culture, heritage and creativity to drive social and environmental impact.

Through our Member Community, Upstart is advising 10 private foundations, donor-advised funds, and endowed cultural institutions — with $1 billion of aggregate investment capacity — to invest with funds, businesses, and real estate projects in the creative economy expected to have commercial success, and generate environmental and social impact. Learn more about the Upstart Member Community.

Through our Cultural Institution Study Group, Upstart Co-Lab is advising 25 museums and other cultural institutions — with $6 billion of investment assets – as they begin their impact investing journey and learn to align their endowment with their values and mission. This is the start to unlocking the impact investing potential of U.S. museums and other cultural institutions which hold over $64 billion in their aggregate endowments.
