The 10-episode, one-hour original drama series explores what happens when a brilliant, yet controversial tech idea gets incubated on the wrong side of the tracks by three strangers who don't necessarily fit the mold of "tech entrepreneurs." Set amongst the unconstrained, yet opportunist streets of Miami, StartUp weaves a complex and exciting narrative, featuring the high-stakes struggle of what one will do to reach ultimate success. Forced to fund a tech company with dirty money from unsuspecting places while forming ties with a dangerous, Haitian gang, the fight to build a business pales in comparison to the fight to stay alive, especially when there's a vehement FBI agent who wields the power to make or break those he comes in contact with—and not always for the right reasons.
After a discouraging discovery, the trio forges a new plan. Izzy seeks the help of someone significant from her past. Nick faces a setback while catching a glimpse into the strange world of Wes Chandler. Ronald struggles to get his crew behind the new way of doing business.
After a devastating tragedy, Ronald faces a harrowing decision. Izzy finds herself in hot water after a brazen plan lands her in the Russians' sights. Nick finally grabs Wes's attention with the help of Wes's daughter, Mara.
Rask makes a bold move to set things right. After a near-death experience, Izzy reaches out to an old friend. Ronald and Nick rally to Izzy's defense as they rethink the future of their business. The group fears Araknet's baggage will scare off Wes.
As ArakNet struggles to best their competitor, Izzy butts heads with the team. Rask recovers, but his murderous past threatens to resurface. Wes, Nick and Mara hustle to bring ArakNet street cred against slim odds. Ronald goes down a dangerous road he's long avoided.
As Araknet celebrates a huge win, Ronald struggles to repair his life before it's too late. The Russians extend a tainted olive branch, causing dissent within the company and throwing Izzy into inner turmoil. Just as Araknet is poised to make a controversial move, an unforeseen enemy strikes.
