Note from Uplyft

Team Uplyft is made up of key members across functions (marketing, product, growth, engineering, operations) who have worked at Lyft. We know the recipe for growing a successful consumer business, and have the pattern recognition to identify winners. Our edge is that we get exclusive dealflow based on the Lyft founder and investor network.

We are a powerful, active community that supports early-stage founders looking to raise capital while getting help from us along the way. Founders give us an allocation in their fundraising rounds because they understand the value of getting support from the Lyft network.

By joining this community, you will have access to unique investing opportunities and will be able to help founders grow their business.


We want to hear about early-stage consumer startups that we think an army of Lyft talent can help grow (marketplace, transportation, or broader consumer tech). If you know a founder who we should know, message us.
