New York

UpStart’s New York Hub is uniquely poised in the northeast, lighting up change from Rochester to Philadelphia, and beyond. We focus on supporting a blend of entrepreneurs, organizational leaders, and community members.


Program Highlights

  • Community Design Lab with UJA-Federation of New York, for early-stage and established organizations to expand their impact in Westchester County
  • The Tribe 12 Fellowship for young leaders to spark new ideas, learn entrepreneurial skills, and ignite change across Philadelphia
  • Intrapreneur Fellowship with UJA-Federation of New York, for a selective group of rising leaders embedded in various departments, ready to take up the mantle of change
  • Research and community-driven brainstorming around supplementary Jewish education in Rochester with the Farash Foundation


We frequently partner with large Jewish institutions to help them solve organizational challenges and make change from within.

We’re currently doing a deep dive into the needs of the New York region, and hatching some plans to build more public offerings in the future.

We’d love to hear from you if you have an idea, are interested in a partnership, or want to learn more. Reach out to Aleeza Lubin, Senior Director, Regional Programs.
