Our Story
Founded by Casey Fenton, one of the visionaries behind Couchsurfing, Upstock takes the concept of sharing to a new level - sharing ownership of projects and companies that ignite passion.
We created Upstock to help founders and businesses share ownership with their workers easily, quickly, and securely. By integrating Restricted Stock Units (RSUs) with an intuitive interface, we make it possible for workers to become emotionally invested in their work, driving greater collaboration and dedication.
Our Vision
By 2030, 30% of companies will thrive through shared success with employees.
Vision Of Equality
Upstock's shared equity inspires stakeholders to excel and fosters true company alignment, empowering businesses to thrive through increased worker ownership and cooperative capitalism. We simplify and inspire by making ownership accessible and emotionally rewarding, revolutionizing the future of business.
Universal Equity
Upstock’s mission is to turn every team member into a true believer through cutting-edge, mission-aligning equity that inspires everyone to do the best work of their lives. If we do this, we will simultaneously improve companies and improve the world, accelerating the worldfrom 8% to 30% worker-owned.
Our Mission
Inspiring everyone to do the best work of their lives.
Be a part of the solution
A movement is growing that is reversing this trend by creating more worker ownership. Companies with substantial worker ownership heal communities and make businesses stronger and more resilient. These companies are more productive, experience a faster rate of growth, and fail less often.

Ownership Mindset:
A mindset shift that can drive success
A Harvard Business Review article shows that when the US reaches 30% worker-ownership, the wealth of the bottom 50% of households will 4x, creating life-changing gains for marginalized populations and the least educated. The top 1% will only see their net worth decrease by a mere 14%, a small cost to ensure a more fair, sustainable, and safe world.
