Formerly Galvanize Ventures, Upslope Ventures is an early stage venture capital fund that invests in startups across the country. We believe diverse teams are the key to successful businesses and are proud to invest in founders from unique backgrounds looking for creative solutions to market challenges, 19% of our founders are women. Our investments are geographically varied, hailing from Austin, Boulder, Boston, Denver, Los Angels, New York, Ontario, Portland, San Francisco, and Seattle. As entrepreneurs and operators ourselves, we provide more than capital and introductions; we aim to empower entrepreneurs with the resources they need to have their best chance at success Ð even if we donÕt invest. Adhering in our own beliefs, our team is based in the middle of the country, in Denver, Colorado, and is led by our female Managing Partner, Kate Beardsley.
