Our marketplace creates and empowers successful relationships between businesses and service providers from marketers to accountants to HR professionals. Over 225,000 businesses visit the UpCity Marketplace each month seeking services from over 40,000 providers in over 600 cities in North America. We provide transparency and insights to dramatically improve the B2B partner selection and purchase experience.
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.
