RevUp was created in 2014 by Allan Tear, Bill Cesare and Melissa Withers. After many years working as equity-only investors, we saw a need—and a golden opportunity—to innovate how we grow revenue-focused companies. We know that cash is best served with capacity and that growth is paramount to success. We built RevUp to optimize around those core values.


We amplify our cash investment with hands-on support from the RevUp Growth team, built to help our companies design, launch, and benefit from data-driven growth experiments. While we don't take board seats, RevUp partners work closely with you to share what we've learned as successful entrepreneurs and as investors in 120+ companies.
