RISE Multicultural Entreprenuers Series

24 02 2010

Imagine yourself being surrounded by creative ideas, innovative people and the inspiration to work on something your passionate about! Yeah, that’s pretty much where I’ve been in the last two months. I’ve been engaging, reaching out, brainstorming and connecting with Austin’s most talented and creative people, and now you get to experience that with the RISE Multicultural Entrepreneurs Series. The series is part of the 2010 RISE Entrepreneurship Conference that takes place next week, March 1-5th. RISE is a conference for entrepreneurs by entrepreneurs; it is intimate, relevant and inclusive. And it really is inclusive! I’ not just saying that because I happen to work on the project, well, maybe I am. The Multicultural Series brings entrepreneurs from different communities including Latinos, African-Americans, Asians – South Asians y mas. We have 60+ session hosts kickin’ real world knowledge via social media, start-ups, marketing, philanthropy, politics, life lessons and culture. I’m so appreciative for having the opportunity to work with these amazing people.

Ready to engage in learning and building relationships? Sign up at www.riseaustin.org for sessions in the Multicultural Entrepreneurs Series.

Greetings! I know this is somewhat off topic but I
was wondering if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my
comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and
I’m having difficulty finding one? Thanks a lot!
