Our History

UpDIG’s ideas stretch back to 2007 when our founders were working on parallel tracks in global development and academic publishing at MIT. With roots in creative direction, interactive design, social documentary, strategic/marketing communications—and now deep experience in new business strategies and digital communities—we formalized as a B Corp social enterprise in 2016 to incubate new businesses and support sustainable business practices. Today, we help a range of organizations in need of creative solutions to improve our world.

Clients include American Repertory Theater, African Development Bank, Aspen Network for Development Entrepreneurs (ANDE), Black Fox Philanthropy, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Children’s Hospital Colorado, Ethereum Foundation, KUVO Jazz/THE DROP, Mile High United Way, PBS Kids, and The MIT Press.

We’ve supported major brands like American Express, AT&T, Discovery Networks, GM, Green Mountain Energy, as well as public entities like Bay Area Rapid Transit, Colorado Water Conservation Board, City of Denver, UK Aid, and USAID.
