Bringing to light

A human-centered experience for UpStart’s program participants

The basics

Working closely with our Venture Accelerator and regional hub teams, Ruthie comes to UpStart with a passion for community building, social impact, and innovation. She first dipped her toes into the world of design thinking by developing a peer mentor program for transfer students at Colorado College, where she also studied psychology and music. Prior to her role as Program Assistant, Ruthie worked with UpStart’s Colorado Teen Fellowship, supporting teens’ development of innovative and socially impactful ventures.

How Ruthie finds meaning and comes together with others

Ruthie finds meaning by gathering with friends, both new and familiar, over Shabbat dinners and concerts, and by pursuing anything and everything that’s just beyond her comfort zone!
