Sustaining the Ecosystem

New logo, New Name, Same Great group!

Formerly HOT Coffee, now R.I.S.E. is moving into its 5th 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 are consistently hosting 60+ attendees at each meeting; we have updated the format of the newsletter, 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!

About RISE


R.I.S.E. is a FREE Networking group, designed with a goal to help small businesses, startups, and entrepreneurs network and connect with one another. We typically meet every other Friday morning from 7:45 to 9:00 am.


Our format is simple, we begin with a few opening remarks, introductions, business and community announcements, our featured presentation, and we end around 8:45, with time for networking!


Coffee and pastries are usually ready around  7:30 am! This event is open to all to attend. There is no required membership or registration! Bring a friend, a coworker, a job seeker, student, retiree or anyone looking to connect with other like-minded professionals.


All are welcome to attend!!
