Three Things You Can’t Miss:

  2. Wednesday at 12pm ET: Join us for a 10 min mindful reset with our Head of Community, Sarah, who is a certified yoga teacher and mindfulness facilitator. She’ll lead us in an approachable 7 minute meditation, all levels of experience welcomed! (RSVP)
  3. Just launched — Sustainability Changemakers Community: Jack Policar, COO of Phood, and Sonia Ketkar, CEO of Greenverd, have launched an action-oriented community of sustainability changemakers. Their first event is next week Thursday, 4/15 at 6:30pm ET with Akanksha Halbe from the United Nations Foundation. (RSVP)

Founders inspiring founders! Jasmine Maietta, founder of Round21, was on our Pitch Night last week and inspired Nadia Haven with her amazing pitch. Such a great reminder that you never know the ripple effect you have and who you are inspiring.

New Feature Alert: Video Recording From Events

Want to go to an event but the timing doesn’t work?

We’ve added two things:

1) The ability for admins to be able to download event video and audio to share.

2) The ability for admins to make event video and audio available for community members on the Upstream for Web event page.

In the future, we plan to make replays viewable from Upstream without needing to download.
