Join us for our 1 Year Birthday Party and Community Celebration

Rochester Rising is turning 1 year old! This online news platform was created last July to amplify the stories of Rochester entrepreneurs and give a voice to our emerging entrepreneurial community.

Join us for a celebration of this milestone!

This evening is not just for Rochester Rising. It's a time to celebrate the entire entrepreneurial community of Rochester and its growth over the past year. 

All tickets include a buffet style meal from Grand Rounds and 1 beer, wine, cocktail, or soft drink.

As part of this event, we have also invited one entrepreneur from the community to tell more of their story, as chosen by the Rochester entrepreneurial community. Look for an announcement of this speaker early next week.

We will also have a $2 raffle with items from Rochester Rising and GoRout up for grabs. All proceeds from the raffle will go toward keeping Rochester Rising alive and running.

This event was made possible by: Twisted Barrel Wood Fired Pizza, Sonex Health, and Brandhoot.

and by: AM Fitness, Community and Economic Development Associates, TerraLoco, Penz Dental Care, FireFly, Carpet Booth Studios, BubbleBall Rochester, GoRout, and COVR Medical

This incredible businesses helped to subsidize the food costs for members of our community, to lower the barriers for everyone to attend. Be sure to buy your ticket at the low $10 price before funds from our amazing community partners run out!
