About Upbeat

Upbeat is reinventing public relations (PR) for companies by making it on-demand, transparent, and affordable. Unlike working with traditional PR agencies that cost tens of thousands of dollars a month and endless hours of meetings, companies can launch a campaign with Upbeat by signing up on our site and manage everything through our dashboard.

How are we able to do this? We’ve built an incredible platform that automates some of the most painful, manual parts of the process and leverages machine learning to build the world’s most powerful engine for connecting companies with stories to journalists and media publications. We’ve helped over 200 companies get featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Good Morning America, NPR, Fast Company, and much, much more.


Upbeat was started by Ricky Yean and David Tran, who previously founded Crowdbooster, a leading social media analytics product used by thousands of brands and agencies across the world including Jetblue, Nike, Red Bull and even celebrities like Lil Wayne and Britney Spears. We’re a San Francisco-based startup funded by renowned investors including Y Combinator, Stanford StartX, SV Angel, and Charles River Ventures.
