As Denver continues to be a hub for female entrepreneurs and business owners, Stacy Taubman is bringing RISE Collaborative Workspace to help unite and support the growing population of smart, strong, successful women in the area.
RISE first opened its doors in 2017 in St. Louis with a mission to help women succeed. That location now has 270 members and soon that same mission will ring true for other professional women in Denver — helping them “RISE” to their potential.
The Denver co-working space is on the corner of Colorado and 7th Avenue above Snooze Eatery and U.S. Bank. RISE houses 14 private offices, 10 dedicated desks, free parking, ample room and comfortable seating for working and coffee meetings, three conference rooms, one classroom, a social media room, two phone/mother rooms and an open coffee and snack bar.
Another unifying force of the RISE Collaborative community is the desire to invest in and support tomorrow’s female leaders. Through its nonprofit arm, RISE Society, high school girls can enroll in a mentorship program where they are matched with an adult member of RISE Collaborative to provide advice and support around the teen girl’s career and personal interests.
“We believe that you can’t be what you can’t see. We are creating a pipeline for success by providing a collaborative space for teen girls to engage with smart, strong, successful women who want to give back to the next generation,” says Taubman.
Weekly programming will also be offered at RISE to members, including Lunch and Learns, workshops and other social events designed to connect members and promote personal growth.
Applications for membership are currently being accepted at: www.RISEworkspace.com/denver.
