“The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only legitimate object of good government.”

Thomas Jefferson

We believe strategic policymakers are uniquely well-positioned to change the world.


Putting humans on the Moon required 2.8 billion hours of work and cost about $280 billion dollars. That’s often what it takes to achieve important things.

Some particularly ambitious and altruistic policymakers are actively trying to make the world a much better place. Upgradable is here to help.

An Upgrade Program (“UP”) helps you improve your entire life and systematically achieve your highest value goals. In other words, helping you do as much good with your resources as possible.

Think of your UP Team like your personal J.A.R.V.I.S. or Alfred Pennyworth. Or your personal advisory board, including on demand researchers, assistants, and confidantes to help you do your personal and professional work with or for you. With policymakers, UPs are generally between 3 months and 3 years long and focus on measurably improving whatever you’d find most valuable to help you focus more deeply on doing your policy work. 

Our founder has informally advised a handful of policymakers on their policy work over the years and knows how complicated and stressful it can be to actually get things done. Patient support from the right kind of people deeply helps.  

If you would like to discuss what an UP might look like for you, please reach out. We’d love to support you. 

If you want to subsidize UPs for financially-constrained people doing high-impact work, please consider donating.
