Call for Submissions and Opinion Pieces

Rochester Rising is a platform to tell the stories of Rochester-based entrepreneurship. The goal is to make this the place to find entrepreneurial news and learn about Rochester’s innovation community. To support this mission, and truly make this a voice for all Rochester entrepreneurs, we encourage the submission of press releases and opinion pieces that help amplify the stories of our entrepreneurs.


Guidelines for submission of press release:

The startup, company, or organization must be based in the greater Rochester area. The press release must be related to a new entrepreneurial initiative, a new product or product line launch, a major business development or advancement, or a new innovation offering.


Guidelines for submission of opinion pieces:

Opinion articles must be related to the current state of innovation or entrepreneurship, state of a high growth potential industry, entrepreneurship in general, or business growth (branding/marketing insight, business development, fundraising, technology, business tools, etc.).


All submissions must be accurate, timely, and relevant to the local entrepreneurial environment. Submission does not guarantee publication.

And as always, we welcome story leads and suggestions of news and stories you would like to see covered.
