Celebrating 20 years!
Originally founded as the Urban Reach Institute for Student Enterprises nearly 20 years ago, we are now simply 'URISE,' a forward-thinking nonprofit economic development organization headquartered in Northeast Hartford's Promise Zone.
Inclusive + Innovative + Impactful
As the only community technology and entrepreneurship incubator in New England for urban youth and their families, we are proudly a multi-cultural, youth-centered and expert-led nonprofit organization.
Youth + Entrepreneurship = Success
Our award-winning business and entrepreneurship programs give underserved individuals, especially youth and young adults, a voice and a platform to dream, more do more and make a difference in the world.
