What is UpTo Know Good?


UpTo Know Good is a social enterprise aimed at delivering quality creative services to urban entrepreneurs and small business owners. We achieve our mission through three levels of services.

  1. The first is UpTo Mainstreet, a where we pop-up in a storefront property for one week and offer services for a suggested donation.
  2. The second is a permanent location in East Liberty. Here we see customers and provide similar services, but offer more consultation and work on longer term projects.
  3. The third level of service is an education platform called Know Good. We are currently building out education resources on topics about the creative services industries.
