Note from Uplyft

Uplyft is made up of key members across functions (marketing, product, growth, engineering, operations) who have worked at Lyft. We know the recipe for growing a successful business facing heavy competition, and have the pattern recognition to identify winners. Our edge is that we get exclusive dealflow based on the Lyft founder and investor network.

We are a powerful, active community that supports early-stage founders looking to raise capital while getting help from us along the way. Founders give us an allocation in their fundraising rounds because they understand the value of getting support from the Lyft network.

Lead investors in prior syndicated deals include: Floodgate, Naval Ravikant, Hustle Fund, Caffeinated Capital, Initialized Capital, Cowboy Ventures, Craft, Uncork, and Village Global, with participation from many other top tier investors.

*This syndicate is not officially affiliated with Lyft, Inc.


We want to hear about early-stage consumer startups that we think an army of Lyft talent can help grow (marketplace, transportation, or broader consumer tech). If you know a founder who we should know, message us.
