We are closing our pre-seed round this week and Rise has been a big part of that so thank you again for organising these sessions

A really enjoyable and rewarding session. A great opportunity to step out of the day job and provide advice and support to the entrepreneurs who are looking to make a difference and solve problems through their innovations.
