Our story

It all started when Antoine and Philippe met in June 2009. They shared the desire to help people work better, and a passion for technology – Excel in particular. The first version of UpSlide launched in 2011 and it attracted financial teams – for example at Mazars, where UpSlide is now deployed in 40 countries. In 2015, UpSlide opened a London and a New York office.

Our expertise

 

UpSlide’s unique strategic positioning involves three-fold expertise: Finance, Technology and Design. Our ambition: we want to give back time for thought and creativity through beautiful, smart tools.
