UpTech was founded to help entrepreneurs turn their big ideas into reality.
UpTech Program History
The UpTech accelerator program was launched in January 2012 to connect talent, money, and ideas in the Cincinnati entrepreneurial ecosystem, as well as to create an digital information industry cluster in Northern Kentucky. Our passion for startups and entrepreneurs is personal: we believe that a strong entrepreneurial culture is an integral part of any thriving city and economy.
In January 2014, our program branched out from our six founding partners (Campbell County Economic Progress Authority,Northern Kentucky ezone/Kentucky Innovation Network, Northern Kentucky University, Northern Kentucky Tri-County Economic Development Corporation, Skyward, and Willman Design); at that time, we formally became UpTech, Inc., led by a five-member Board of Directors. UpTech, Inc., our program, remains a separate entity from the UpTech I Fund, LLC, our investment arm.
