Rise & Shine is a morning meetup for entrepreneurs

Whether you’re a new business owner, serial entrepreneur, or just have an idea you might want to explore, Rise & Shine is for you! Come as you are. All are welcome to attend our twice-a-month gathering of innovators, changemakers, and business resource providers from across the region. 

Rise & Shine meetups beginning in Farmville on June 1, 2022

Rise & Shine has been occurring as a hybrid event since March 2022, with participants connecting virtually through Zoom and in-person in both Lawrenceville, Virginia and South Hill, Virginia. In June, several RISE Collaborative local partners are teaming up to expand Rise & Shine to include an in-person location in Farmville, Virginia.

Rise & Shine is an informal and interactive networking event with opportunities to meet fellow entrepreneurs and business service providers. Bring your business cards and be prepared to share you a quick introduction of yourself and your business. Complimentary coffee and water are provided. 

Rise & Shine meetups are no-cost, high-value networking events, open to all residents, students, and community members, offered through partnerships with local organizations, with funding support from GO Virginia Region 3, which stretches from Patrick County to Brunswick County to the greater Farmville region. 

We believe that creating spaces for entrepreneurs and ecosystem builders to gather, interact, and innovate is a key driver of a vibrant, regional entrepreneurial and innovation ecosystem. If you would like to host a Rise &  Shine meetup in your community, contact us at hello@sovarise.com to join the RISE Collaborative team.
