More about the RISE Conference
RISE is not your ordinary conference. Because RISE is free, decentralized, and crowd-sourced, the breakout sessions are organized by session hosts, each of whom chooses his/her own topic and session location. These forums are limited to 25 participants and are led by established entrepreneurs, investors, business leaders, and service providers all over Austin. In addition to several hundred breakout sessions, RISE hosts special events for entrepreneurs including Keynotes, Fast Pitch Competitions, Funding Forum, Women’s Entrepreneur Lunch, and Entrepreneur Awards. During the RISE conference, you’ll connect with entrepreneurs and startups from multiple sectors and levels, along with leaders from the investment community, corporate and small business, universities, nonprofits, and government. It’s a fun and highly educational ride, much like entrepreneurship itself.
