New partnership to benefit early-stage startups

Upstart Labs emphasizes its different approach from other accelerators and points to the partnership as proof it works.

"We work with one company at a time, working side by side to launch to market with them," said new General Partner of Upstart Labs, Kevin Tate. "We believe [the new partnership] validates our craft approach to building these companies."

Tom Sperry, General Partner at RVP, said in a press release that Upstart Labs will help give early-stage companies "the absolute best chance of success."

The first two joint investments for Upstart Labs and Rogue Venture Partners are Juked, a new music discovery platform, and Measureful, which helps digital marketers quickly analyze multi-channel data.
