A community of doers and thinkers coming together for good


...is to help deeply engaged, highly motivated individuals transform good ideas for changing the world into a great ones.  At present, UP is building a community located in the heart of NYC to serve as the new center of gravity for anyone interested in designing, developing, and discussing innovative solutions to complex global challenges.  

If you ever watched a TED Talk and felt inspired to take action but weren't sure how, then UP is for you. Here you will find inspiring speakers, unique curricula, great hospitality, and a vetted community of talented individuals who go great lengths to support and invest in each other’s ideas and wellbeing. Whatever stage of the journey, all of our services are designed to help you find and further your purpose.
