UpStart is a Jewish non-profit social venture and innovation consulting firm. Help us keep the Jewish community vibrant and innovative!

Our Mission

To inspire and advance innovative ideas that contribute to the continued growth and vitality of Jewish life.

Who we are

UpStart is a social venture and innovation consulting firm. We partner with entrepreneurs, startups and established organizations to redesign the experience and expression of modern Jewish life.

Our Vision

  • We see a Jewish landscape that ignites the creativity and industry of Jews across North America to bring inspiring, relevant and meaningful Jewish experiences to every Jew interested in participating in Jewish life.
  • We see the American Jewish community using its resources to tackle thorny social problems, overcome spiritual barriers and build compassionate communities.
  • Philanthropic resources, earned revenues and talented leadership will flow to support Jewish life.
  • We will have reminded ourselves that innovation IS Jewish tradition and the time is now for having a “research and development” portfolio within and across all Jewish organizations.

The UpStarters

These organizations are radically changing the way Jewish life is lived. With some help from UpStart along the way, their great ideas are turning into sustainable businesses that will light our Jewish future.
