To help people cultivate their life’s purpose through meaningful connections and experiences in remarkable spaces.
A world where everyone has the support, space, and resources to develop themselves to their highest potential while maintaining a healthy, balanced life.
UP is a NY based community of high-performing individuals with diverse disciplines, backgrounds, ages, cultures, and interests. The tie that binds is a natural curiosity about the world and a sincere desire to improve the way we live in it.
Our growing community includes influential musicians, mountaineers, bankers, chefs, fashion designers, coders, astronauts, yogis, diplomats, data scientists, authors, and more. We take great responsibility and tremendous pride in building a supportive, inclusive, and comfortable environment that excites connection on the deepest of levels.
We offer a variety of programming all focused on personal and professional development. UP events are not your typical affairs. They are unusual, informative, engaging, convivial, and most of all, fun. They spark new ideas and ignite lasting bonds with unexpected results. And they are held in unique locations most of us rarely get to see. We know time is your most valued currency--especially here in New York--which is why we help you invest it on purpose.
