This week on the podcast we talk about the Rochester Rising Spring Membership Drive to help make this platform a sustainable part of the Rochester entrepreneurial community. Rochester Rising was launched in July 2016 to fill a real gap in this city and to amplify the stories of our entrepreneurs. Since that time, we’ve told the stories of over 134 unique startups and entrepreneurs to give a face and voice to this city’s entrepreneurial culture. Sustaining memberships help to keep Rochester Rising running and reduce our dependency on advertising and sponsorship. Plus, you get some cool rewards from becoming a sustaining member and know that you’re helping to grow our entrepreneurs, grassroots-style.
Today on the podcast we talk about:
· The basics of Rochester Rising and what we’ve accomplished in the almost 2 years since the inception of this business.
· How the crowdfunding campaign Patreon works and what you get for using it.
· Why you should care.
· How to become a sustaining member.
