The RISE Academy: Microbusiness Introduction

In January 2021, RISE is launching a 12-week microbusiness program called the RISE Academy. Released RISE program graduates will make up the first cohort and moving forward we will offer this program 3-4 times a year on a rolling basis exclusively for Nebraskans with criminal histories that want to create or grow an existing small business.

We will share how this new program fits with the in-prison entrepreneurship curriculum participants receive from RISE, you'll get to meet the newly hired program director Alejandra Jimenez and hear her vision for the microbusiness program and then we'd love to get some real-time feedback from you all.
