Our Story

Upshot was started originally because there was a huge amount of interest in using foam tipped arrows, originally designed for live action role play, in business and camps around the world. Jordan founded and organizations were pouring in from around the world purchasing foam arrows and bows.

In order to better serve these new customers Jordan recruited Mike to join the team and bring his extensive knowledge of summer camps and large scale events to help organizations create dynamic games and monetize their assets.

We started off small, working from a garage in Seattle, WA and have grown significantly in the time we’ve been operating. Since the start, we have added new games to our repertoire, dozens of clients, and served thousands of our clients’ customers.
