Since launching Upstart four weeks ago, we have been thrilled by how many people have contacted us about participating in Upstart, both as upstarts and backers. Given the high volume of interest, we have decided to open up our pilot program to 5 more schools where we saw the most demand: Berkeley, Harvard, NYU, Stanford, and Yale. We are excited to be able to bring our program to these additional campuses. We have already planned on campus events at many of our original schools, and we will evaluate doing the same for these new campuses as well.
We also plan to continue expanding whom our offering is available to. And, just like we are doing now, we will base our decision on what campuses to open our program up to based on the level of interest we see. So if you want to get Upstart at your school - spread the word and help us find interested upstarts and backers!
