At Upside, we understand the importance of failure as a learning tool, because it’s a path to getting it right.
Albert Einstein was expelled from school at the age of 15. Steve Jobs was forced out of Apple in 1985 after a power struggle with the company’s board. Michael Jordan missed 12,345 shots in his NBA career.
Missing gets you part way to winning.
As a company, learning from failure is in our values, but it’s also built into the foundation of our ecosystem. Upside works on the premise that experience does not always equal skill in the investment world; in fact, sometimes the very opposite.
We know that a good analyst will need to nurture their investment ideas. This involves research, analysis, thought and time. Predictions change and develop, they grow and shrink, they are like living beings that need care and attention at every change in the market.
Combining science and technology we guide and nudge users to develop their investing skills. We help users refine predictions on stocks, develop assessments on market conditions, and challenge thought patterns.
Upside filters out jargon for first timers, making investing available to everyone, everywhere.
At Upside, we know there’s a science to being right.
