UP Global expands community support and operations in Europe, Brasil, and Latin America



UP Global expands community support and operations in Europe, Brasil, and Latin America


Over the next week, UP Global will launch regional resources at three different locations as part of its international expansion effort – UP Latam, UP Europe, and UP Brasil. This marks a significant step towards supporting 500,000 entrepreneurs and 1,000 thriving startup communities by the end of 2016. With the support of Google for Entrepreneurs and Omidyar Network, UP is newly positioned to provide programs, networks and resources to over 200,000 entrepreneurs in these three regions.

“Taking on a stable presence in three new regions will allow us to support the amazing efforts of more community leaders in more meaningful and localized ways. These regional offices are strategically the most powerful initiative driving towards our goal of helping to reach 1,000 thriving and sustaining startup communities by the end of 2016, and it is also reflective of our efforts to truly become a global organization, not just a US-based organization doing business internationally,” says Marc Nager, CEO and President of UP Global.

They're extremely excited to support more activity in these regions and offer more tailored support to Community Leaders and the vibrant entrepreneurial communities they are building. Whether it is Startup Weekend, StartupDigest, or other programs and initiatives, they're looking forward to seeing even more opportunities for entrepreneurs come to reality.
