About Us

Formerly HOT Coffee, now R.I.S.E. is in its 6th successful year. As we continue to grow, we have evolved a bit to meet the needs of the growing R.I.S.E. audience. We host entrepreneurs, innovators, and small business owners across a wide variety of industries; we added a brand new online magazine, and we have corporate community sponsors to help ensure we have coffee at each meeting! Remaining true to our founding principles, we remain free, open and inclusive to our entire entrepreneurial community!

As national, regional, and local attention is turning to innovation and entrepreneurship, R.I.S.E.'s place in the North Alabama entrepreneurial ecosystem looks solid!
