SHOP LOCAL @ RISE FEST
We are flipping the switch on silent auctions! Local businesses are joining RISE and offering their coolest prototype or experience to you. The minimum investment is the price it costs the businesses to offer their experience. This means local businesses are paid first, then RISE receives a donation from any amount over that price. Make your investment today and support local entrepreneurs in two ways: paying local businesses to get an exclusive experience & supporting entrepreneurial education through RISE.
Mini Film Fest produced by EM EN Studios
Watch the premiere of four short films about RISE entrepreneurs and the story behind their businesses! Produced by EM EN Studios, this film festival connects local creatives to work in teams to tell the stories of local entrepreneurs. The videography teams will compete for contracts on future RISE video projects.
Concert powered by Juke
Rock on with local startup Juke - the world's first jukebox for live music. Performance by Julia James.
"The sky is the limit for Juke; a one stop shop for connecting listeners with musicians. Artists have the ability to create a unique musical environment by giving fans a means to interact before, during, and after the gig." - Julia James on Juke
