Who (are we)
UpNext is the first platform for GenZ that allows young founders to validate their concepts with the relevant target audiences, build a community of early adopters & fund their pre-seed and seed rounds by our community of GenZ super investors. GenZ style, easily from one's mobile phone.
UpNext is the first platform for GenZ startup founders that fits their storytelling style and enables them to validate, build a community, and get funded. All from their smartphones.
Why (we do what we do)
We believe GenZ holds unbelievable potential enabling them to change our world for the better. Our mission is to help these young founders very early in the process. With UpNext they can validate their ideas super fast in the actual market and attract the attention of investors and partners early in the process.
Most startups die due to “lack of market need”. In other words, the team builds something that people don’t want to use… or don’t care about.
We believe GenZ holds this unbelievable potential for startup founders and they will change our world for the better. Our mission is to help these young founders to discover very early in the process if they should stick to their original idea or move on to the next one.
This then saves them time and improves their chances to launch a successful product that people actually want.
What (we do)
Creating a growing community of GenZers, who broadcast (video) their visions and solutions. From this, they get immediate validation of their idea potential and a pre-seed funding from GenZ top social influencers & content creators.
These GenZ super investors get an unprecedented opportunity to shape the face of the industry with a click of a button. They become involved in the creation of the new generation of unicorn startups created by GenZers and become actual stakeholders in these startups via some exciting blockchain assets (Our investments GenZ DAO ).
Creating a growing community of GenZ founders, who broadcast (video) their visions and solutions. Top GenZ social influencers & content creators then back their favorite projects. This support is done with in-app currency and real crypto tokens (Our investments GenZ DAO ).
How (we do it)
Pitching is dead!
We have developed a social “broadcasting app” that is fun, easy, and connects potential investors to the founders at a much higher level. We allow GenZ founders to shine while staying natural and real.
GenZ visionaries can now showcase their ideas in the form of a tik tok style video while gaining the support of their peers. This is done through a virtual, in-app currency.
Now… you can show that thousands of GenZers believe in what you're building and yourself as a founder. Then you get funded on our platform, the product is launched and these believers become active users. Next round’s potential investors can't help but be attracted to this asset.
