Up! began life in Tokyo in 1992 (under its original name Global Consultancy Group) when its principal took on her first client, Japanese engineering powerhouse, Shimizu. Since the early days, Up's been powered by the imagination of a Silicon Valley raised entrepreneur, technology investor and economic development champion whose expertise on the ground, in the trenches globally, quickly grew as she landed assignments with the Fortune 100 and SMEs in 21 emerging markets in Mid East, S.E. Asia, and E. Europe.
Often found ahead of the trends, Up! has been on a mission to both bring to life and empower forward thinking ideas, add unique perspectives to MNC's strategic foreign market plans, and propel entrepreneurs especially the ‘small but mighty’ businesses that deliver impact and spur innovation and value creation in emerging markets. Up's big-picture strategic vision, tactical detail orientation and strong abilities to implement make it well suited for successful outcomes.
Uplifting Ventures is privately held and its principal has a penchant for trendsetting socially relevant, mutually lucrative and strategic outputs that include inventive and inspirational international programs, initiatives, competitions, collaborations, content, branding, and tactical business models developed as both paid and pro-bono advisor, funded by or in partnership with World Bank (MIGA), U.S. Dept. of State (MEPI), U.S. Dept. of Commerce (MBDA), The White House, Shimizu, SK Group, Dubai government, Lockheed Martin, Boeing, NASA, the who's who of Abu Dhabi's economic landscape (ADNOC, Mubadala, Emirates Foundation, Khalifa Fund, Aldar, ADWEA, Al Qudra Holding), Bahrain's Injazat Capital (Gulf Finance House/GFH), the Qatar Foundation, and more.
