Does Upscalers offer investment or financial advice?

Investing in startups involves risks, including illiquidity, lack of dividends, capital loss - either total or partial - and dilution, and should only be done within a diversified portfolio. Upscalers is exclusively for investors who understand these risks and make their own investment decisions. Investment opportunities are not offered to the public, and investors must be eligible members of Upscalers. Upscalers provides the means by which startups are able to communicate with interested investors and present their project to eligible members. Each proposed project does not constitute investment advice and is not subject to any specific financial recommendation or analysis. Upscalers encourages you to conduct your own research before investing and to consult a qualified investment advisor before making an investment decision.

Can anyone attend the networking events?

Networking events are exclusively for Upscalers members. To attend, you must be a member of our community.

What are Upscalers Core groups?

Upscalers Core Groups are small, focused sub-communities within Upscalers. They consist of 8 to 10 like-minded members who share similar goals, interests, and job positions. Core Groups offer a more intimate and specialized networking experience within our community.
