Godreau officially joins the team on June 30, leading new business development and sales efforts, and will be based out of the organization’s new presence in New York City.

“Enrique has been incredibly involved in the startup community and we’re thrilled to have him joining UP Global,” said UP Global CEO Marc Nager.

“He brings a wealth of over 30 years of experience inspiring entrepreneurs, helping them scale, mentoring leaders, as well as investing in startups across the country. As we grow as an organization, Enrique’s knowledge and passion will help our team and community leaders make an even bigger impact across the world.”

Prior to joining UP Global, Godreau co-founded Voyager Capital in 1996, an early-stage venture capital firm; GSharp Ventures in 2012, a consulting, investment and advisory firm; and 9Mile Labs in 2013, a Business-To-Business (B2B) technology startup accelerator that provides capital, mentorship, and company development resources and services. Godreau serves as a mentor for The Founder Institute, an advisor to The Women’s Venture Capital Fund, and a director with Global Partnerships and Summit Imaging. He has served on the board of directors to 16 startup companies including Attenex, Global Market Insite (GMI), GoAhead Software, and Photobucket and is a frequent speaker in the areas of entrepreneurship, emerging technologies, and venture capital.

“Marc Nager and his team, along with the dedicated support of an exceptional board and partners around the world, have created an extraordinary entrepreneurship ecosystem already over 300,000 people strong,” said Godreau. “Through active collaboration with dedicated community managers, UP Global has impacted entrepreneurship in over 500 cities across 126 countries. It is a pleasure for me to be joining UP Global at this stage in its history. Leading this effort from my hometown of New York City makes it doubly rewarding.”
