As a reminder, RevUp invests in B2B and B2C companies that are moving fast up a revenue-fueled growth curve. Most companies come into our portfolio with $500K-$3M in revenue. Companies receive $100K-250K in non-dilutive cash, a science-driven process to accelerate growth, and the human resources to get it done.

The RevUp Philosophy
Nothing unlocks potential like the right combination of cash and capacity. This is why RevUp pairs our cash investment with a science-driven process to accelerate growth and the human resources to get it done. How's it work? We deploy the RevUp growth team to our portfolio companies as part of our investment to expand a company's digital marketing capability and bend a company's growth curve. Under the direction of RevUp management, and in lockstep with company founders, the team evaluates, identifies, and then executes on a set of revenue-boosting growth opportunities. Trained across a full stack of tools, the growth team works with each portfolio company for ~12 month period following investment as part of our investment.
