Mission Statement

Beginning in November 2010 RISE officially migrated from its original format as an Austin-centered conference to a year-round international program dedicated to empowering entrepreneurs. By investing in the development of a sophisticated technology platform, RISE is able to facilitate the exchange of information and ideas between entrepreneurs with a speed and scale that would be impossible in-person. RISE is continuing to grow its year-round programming, including more small-group sessions, entrepreneur membership groups, and additional professional events like the Fast Pitch and Funding Forums.

Description

RISE is a non-profit program dedicated to inspiring and empowering entrepreneurs. Created originally in 2007 by Roy and Bertrand Sosa as a week-long, free "un-conference" for- and by- entrepreneurs in Austin, Texas, RISE has now grown into an ongoing annual program that leverages its proprietary web interface to provide one-of-a-kind resources and experiences to entrepreneurs worldwide for free.

RISE is unique in that combines both high-tech and high-touch programming. The cornerstone of RISE has been an annual "un-conference" in which seasoned entrepreneurs and experts volunteer to host small-group sessions on any topic of their choice at any location of their choice throughout the city.
