RISE hosts 65 students/new graduates from various schools around the United States. These students worked together in 7 teams of PMs, Designers, and Engineers to build original products throughout the summer!
For 9 weeks (July 6 - Sep 4), our teams worked to ideate, design, and implement their product ideas. Each team followed their own processes to identify user needs, design solution prototypes, and develop application features.
RISE is a supportive commmunity of students and mentors, designed to combat the effects of COVID-19 on students' career opportunities.
The goal of RISE was to give students the chance to connect with peers, build new and exciting products together, and grow, both personally and professionally. Our focus was on creating a rich learning experience for our community members: providing them with resources, hosting guest speaker events, and giving them access to a pool of industry mentors.
In these uncertain and life-altering times, it is easy to give into feelings of worry, anxiety, and fear. Let us all do our best to support one another and RISE above COVID, one step at a time!
