New Feature: In-Event Screensharing

We’re super excited to reveal our latest feature: In-Event Screensharing.

You can now share your screen during an Upstream event for your audience to see.

We’re very excited to see how you will use screensharing to supercharge your Upstream events.

So far, we’ve seen amazing pitch competitions, workshops, and teach-ins hosted on Upstream using the new screensharing function.

Recently, Female Founders Fund, Goldman Sachs, & Lightspeed hosted the Female Founders Fund Pitch Competition with 5 founders pitching their start-ups for a cash prize.

Each founder walked through their pitch deck on Upstream using screensharing and took questions from the judges.

Additionally, Upstream's CEO Alex Taub has been hosting weekly teach-ins on Upstream using screensharing to walk through step-by-step how to buy NFTs, set up your crypto wallet, and mint NFTs. You can watch his teach-ins on Youtube here!

Screensharing is a great tool for his educational series “WTF is…” to help increase understanding, accessibility, and participation in the conversations about NFTs, blockchain, and crypto.

Try out screensharing and let us how it can be made better!
