• RevUp invests in B2B and B2C companies that are moving fast up a revenue-fueled growth curve. Companies receive $100K-250K in non-dilutive cash, a science-driven process to accelerate growth, and the human resources to get it done.​



  • Revenue-Based Financing

    We pair cash investment with a science-driven process to accelerate growth. RevUp's in-house integrated marketing team and fund managers work with our companies to boost the bottom line. We don't take equity. Companies return investment as a small percentage of revenue over time.


    Most companies enter the RevUp portfolio with $500K-$3M in revenue, a strong team, and the drive to grow faster. We invest on a rolling basis and hold quarterly screening meetings. To request a review, click below to submit a pre-screening form.

    Our Leadership Team

    RevUp managers have invested in more than 130 companies over the last decade. After years as equity-only investors, we created RevUp in 2015 to innovate on how we build big, profitable companies.
