Upper is a European firm that looks to match companies with freelancers in the tech industry. They believe the future of employment is freelance and remote.
They are backed by Cavalry Ventures, along with venture capitalist another.vc as well as business angels Vassil Terziev, co-founder of Telerik, and Christian Rebernik, former Managing Director and CTO of the mobile bank N26.
They were operating on UpperHQ.co and 10 days ago Namebio listed Grit Brokerage as brokering the $35,000 sale of Upper.co.
Upper was the buyer and now the site operates on Upper.co. Upper.com is parked with a note that it might be for sale, it’s owned by Anything.com. I would imagine the price tag would be pretty hefty and since the European company was already running on a .co, they are satisfied with the upgrade.
The seller of the name was NameCore.com, they have several top tier, one word .co domains for sale on the website.
