The US and the Silicon Valley used to be the prominent place to start, scale, and sell a business (or do an IPO).Since 2015-2016, EU saw a drastic change in the funding (VC) ecosystem as well as in the level and maturity of startup with the potential to compete in order to become market leader. More specifically, the UK, and more recently France, are the 2 most active tech hubs, both regarding the number of new unicorns as well as funding options. We want to invest at the very begin of their journey.
We are a community of 150+ entrepreneurs / investors from different countries (mainly France & the UK, but also in Europe, Israel, Dubai, Singapore and the US) joining forces to co-invest in the world's most promising tech startups as well as expanding our global network.
Upscalers connects investors with opportunities to invest in and connects founders with potential investors! Our goal is to create a worldwide community of tech decision-makers, and to trigger meaningful relationships between members through exclusive events.
