What we're about

UPC is on a journey Build the Black Inheritance. Our mission is to equip young black professionals with healthy habits that breed success in areas surrounding wealth, business, and personal growth. Such habits will include healthy money management, home investment, setting up passive income, starting businesses, and economic awareness to name a few. The goal is for these habits to become so ingrained in our lives, that they trickle down into our families, social circles, and overall community for generations to come.

Our events will include both social hours and mastermind sessions where we sit and learn from each other as well as experienced professionals in various fields. We each bring something unique to the table, and the idea is to foster a learning environment that draws from that collective experience.

If you support this goal and are ready to jump on the horse, please join us and bring a friend! We can't wait to meet you.

UPC Saturdays @THRōW Social® DC

Needs a location

Join UPC for a night of games, weekend drinking, and good vibes at Throw Social DC! Check out the website for more info:

It’s a pretty cool space with a tropical vibe that has lots of paid activities from football bowling to axe throwing, ping pong, chess and darts.

If you’re interested in reserving a spot for football bowling or axe throwing, feel free to sign up for the paid activities on the links below, but you may be paired with others outside of UPC.


UPC will be on the top floor to serve as a home base of sorts. We suggest you try to get there on time so you can meet and fraternize with everyone as small groups are formed. From there, folks can move around, play games or just stay and mingle with the others, while enjoying live music at home base.

Note: Beverages, transportation, and activity costs are at your own expense. Neither UPC, nor the organizer will cover any cost.

If you’re not interested in the activities, you are welcome to hang out around the bar area with other UPC members. If you are interested in reserving a spot for football bowling comment below in the chat with the time slot of your choice and we may be able to knock down some pins together :)

More details to be posted as we get closer to event date.

(*UPC is not affiliated with Throw Social DC. UPC Saturdays is a monthly social event where anyone and everyone, regular attendees and first timers alike, can kick back, relax and interact with new faces. It's purely social, casual and always a great time. Remember to follow us on Instagram @upc_dmv)
