16 New Graduates for RISE in Nebraska

16 New Graduates for RISE in Nebraska

Building Confidence and Hope

February 3, 2020

On January 21st, we celebrated 16 new graduates for RISE in Nebraska! 16 unique stories. 16 transformations. 16 opportunities to build successful futures.

Business Pitch Competition days are special for this Nebraska reentry program. Our Builders have completed six months of intensive work. Not just classroom and text book work, but internal foundation work. The hard stuff.

What does the internal work have to do with entrepreneurship and pitching a business? Everything.

Developing an entrepreneurial mindset requires discipline, grit in the face of setbacks, and a healthy bit of competitiveness to succeed. 

We are so proud of this cohort for bonding together, facing their fears, and pitching their businesses like pros!

"I stood up and I did it. And I'm proud of myself for that." - Ava, RISE Graduate
