JE007: why we created the update, issue one

Last Friday, March 1, we released issue one of the update. In this week's episode, we explain why and go behind the scenes of how it came together.

At upside, we focus on startups, startup communities, and startup investing outside of Silicon Valley. We have our ears to the ground, arms wide open, and platform ready to tell the stories of amazing founders, venture capitalists, and community builders from across the country who are tackling problems in their own unique way.

From the outside, it seems that our communities aren’t being understood.

So we launched the update, a publication featuring editorials, trends, and stories happening outside of Silicon Valley. Our contributors live in the world outside of Silicon Valley and we think you’re going to love their genuine perspective.
