• Capital & Support For Growth Companies


    RevUp is a revenue-based, non-equity, investment program for companies moving fast up a revenue-driven growth curve. Our approach is built on 10+ years of early stage investing and a drive to work with founders we love.

  • Grow Faster.

    RevUp is for B2B and B2C companies that are generating revenue, have a killer team, and plenty of room to run in the markets they serve. Companies receive cash and expert support as they tackle big growth opportunities, including access to our in-house growth team.


    We do not take equity in the companies we invest in. Instead, companies return investment as a percentage of revenue over time. Why this model? Because it works.

  • Capital & Support

    RevUp companies receive $75-$150K in cash and support to accelerate growth. This includes hands-on support from the Betaspring management team, a group that has invested in 100+ companies. Our in-house growth team works with our portfolio companies to expand digital marketing capacity, design and execute on growth experiments, and build infrastructure for long-term success.


    Non-Equity Funding

    RevUp does not take equity. Instead, our portfolio companies return investment as percentage of revenue over time. We are non-dilutive and complementary to a range of funding sources. We invest in both B2B and B2C companies.


    We win if you win. Our investment program includes face-to-face meetings and team work sessions, as well as remote support. Our model only works if the companies we invest in have the capacity to be active partners in growth.

    Grow Faster.

    RevUp uses a combination of cash and services to help companies get stronger and become more profitable. Our approach is built on 10+ years of experience building businesses and a passion for supporting ventures where customers and revenue are the lead drivers of growth.
