Who We Are

With more than 50,000 listed providers—from marketing agencies to accounting firms to HR consultants to IT specialists, and many more—1.5 million businesses (and counting) visit UpCity each month to identify the best partner for their needs. No matter the size or scope, our mission is to facilitate successful relationships and provide insights to help organizations build trust through increased credibility and visibility. And with the UpCity Recommendability Rating measuring a variety of quality signals, we ensure businesses seeking services have all the information they need to make a confident decision.

History

UpCity was founded in 2009 with the goal of helping businesses navigate the rapidly changing world of digital marketing. As the number of marketing service providers grew, so did the challenges for businesses searching for information they could trust to drive their decisions. We launched the UpCity marketplace in 2017 to empower successful relationships between businesses and marketing service providers by providing transparent, trustworthy information. In 2019, the UpCity marketplace expanded to additional B2B service providers from accountants to HR consultants.
