RISE Summit at UVM
June 21 @ 8:30 am - June 22 @ 5:30 pm
UVM presents RISE (Research, Innovation, Sustainability, Entrepreneurship), a new, two-day, summit that brings research, innovation, sustainability, and entrepreneurship together to spur change for a better tomorrow.
In a time of seemingly insurmountable social and economic divides, it’s no longer enough to simply talk about the problems and consider the solutions. Now is the time for action. RISE was born from action, from a desire to bridge the divides and solve the most pressing problems that communities at home and around the country are facing – whether it’s clean water, sustainable energy, affordable housing, food production, and more. RISE at UVM will be the seed for groundbreaking innovative and entrepreneurial growth, bringing an unmatched research enterprise to the communities and ventures that need it most.
Join the summit to learn how the university’s research enterprise and faculty expertise can help your small business thrive in a changing environment, from rural Vermont to downtown Burlington.
