How much time will I spend each week in the Scout Program?

Statistically, each Scout spends an average of 2 hours per week participating in the internal activities of the Scout Program. Please keep in mind that learning to invest is a process of accumulating experience over time. If you want to grow faster, please make learning to invest a hobby and become more actively involved in USP activities. 
What fees are involved?
There are no fees of any kind involved in the USP Program. Moreover, if a project you recommend/invest in goes well, you will receive a substantial investment dividend.

How to Apply?
Please contact KJ, the project leader, who will invite you to join the [Recruitment Information Group]. We will post the latest recruitment notices and links in the group. 
What is the next step after I submit my application? 
The UpHonest team will carefully review each applicant's information, and after an initial screening process, the UpHonest team will invite you for an interview. 
What is the format and content of the interview?
The interview will be conducted online/offline. The main purpose of the interview is to learn about the applicant's work background and original intention of engagement in VC. There will be no Q&A about investment expertise during the interview. 
What is the recruitment cycle for the program?
UPS expects to run two recruitment cycles per year, in March and August. As a steadily expanding, harmonious and fun VC learning organization, we don't pursue fast growth simply, but expect our group members to build a close relationship and learn about VC in a progressive manner.
Why have I never seen any publicity for USP? 
USP is an internal community under the fund, and since its inception, we have grown only through word of mouth. We believe that the right people will find the right organization at the right time.
Is investment experience a prerequisite for a Scout?
No. The UpHonest team will be with you all the way, from the initial project screening to the final deal. As an investor and an entrepreneur, UpHonest is well aware of the need for trial and error. We also believe that every Scout's efforts will pay off. You will soon be able to identify reliable, hardworking and ambitious Chinese entrepreneurs by yourself. 
What kind of companies should I invest in?
This is a very complex question. The UpHonest team will train you thoroughly from the first day you join the team. You will soon be able to answer this question for yourself. 
Are there real investment opportunities for Scouts? 
USP has its own internal angel group - UpHonest Scout Angels. We will follow the star projects that have been invested by the fund in a targeted manner, giving Scouts opportunities to make real investments and grow personal portfolios.
