Upliffin' What's Good
Based in the Augusta, Georgia and Aiken, South Carolina area, our mission is to cause change in the world by uncovering the good that life brings while disrupting the negative view on life people have come to accept.
Upliff comes from the word uplift, meaning to morally or spiritually elevate; inspire happiness or hope.
Meet the Team
Upliff got started at Startup Weekend in Columbia, SC. Jonathan Larry pitched his idea for a social network with only positive content. Jacob Horne, Joanne Nguyen, and Bianca Williams joined Jonathan, and the team worked on the idea throughout the weekend.
On January 26, 2016, Upliff became an LLC. Although we had been working on Upliff for about two months, this is the day we celebrate our birthday.
We got things started with the launch of the first version of our website.
I'm seeing giraffes...why?
Our logo is the outline of a giraffe’s head. The ‘U’ in Upliff features a giraffe’s ears and horns. Check it out:
Giraffes are known as gentle giants and have a huge heart. They are also the tallest animals in the world. They rise above their surroundings and don’t have the same view of the world as those around them.
The giraffe is symbolic of what Upliff accomplishes. In the middle of the negativity we see everyday, the positive content you see on Upliff rises above and shows there is good in the world.
