Rise Alumni Open Forum & Drinks | June edition

Location TBD | June 27th, 2024
14:30 - 19:00

Do you ever have a burning challenge you need to solve for the business and think, “what would my Rise peers say about this?” or “if only I could ask the next Rise breakout group what to do”?

Let’s trigger those nostalgic memories! Hereby we want to offer you a special occasion to not only discuss your burning challenge in a typical Rise session format with your peers, but also to (re)connect with founders from previous batches.

This will be a session where every founder can bring any challenge they want to get input on from peers.

This is an open forum format, which means there is no general topic under which your challenge must fall. It can be in the field of Talent, Product, Operations, Capital, Go2Market, Internationalisation, or Leadership/Personal Development. 

The purpose of this is to have a safe space to get your peer input on these challenges. For that reason, we will not involve niche expertise in specific fields, but rather we invite later stage scaleup founders such as from the Shine programme, to contribute to the conversation as well. 

We will wrap up the session with a special Q&A with a special guest.

How do you best prepare for the session?

  • Submit a well thought through challenge you want to present to your peers.  

  • Think about what context your peers would need to understand your challenge better. 

  • Remember you are there to get input from other founders, not necessarily industry experts or advisors. i.e for example this will not be a place to dive into what to do with your legacy code. 

  • Focus on big important business decisions in the field of Talent, Product, Operations, Capital, Go2Market, Internationalisation, or Leadership/Personal Development that you think your peers can think along with you. 

  • Be prepared to pitch your challenge in 1 minute or less. (We are strict with this!)

This session is ideal for...

  • Founders and/or CEO’s who completed the Rise programme.

  • We have room for 1 person per company to attend this session.
