Community Guidelines


Ucities is a social platform and marketplace dedicated to local startup ecosystems.  Our mission is to connect Startup People and to help build flourishing local startup communities both online and in person.  Supporting this mission is the strong belief that startups are the foundation and future of economic growth for everyone.

Ucities has created these Community Guidelines to help our members be more productive and successful.

These Community Guidelines cover the types of discussions and content that are acceptable on Ucities along with what Ucities may deem to be inappropriate and subject to action by Ucities. These community guidelines are intended to complement the list of Do’s and Don’ts outlined in the User Agreement.

You should behave professionally and not be dishonest or inappropriate. It is not okay to share graphic, obscene or pornographic images.
