DENVER – RISE Collaborative, a curated community and workplace for professional women, will soon open its first Colorado location near Cherry Creek. The new workspace will uniquely cater to Denver’s business women as well as offer a mentorship program for teenage girls, creating a pipeline for success for the next generation of female leaders.
Located at 730 Colorado Boulevard., the 10,000+ square-foot workspace features 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. The space can also be utilized as a premier event space for groups 200+. Weekly programming will be offered to members including Lunch and Learns, Growth Workshops, and social events designed to connect members and equip them with tools and knowledge to grow in their businesses and personal lives.
“It’s common for women in business to crave connections with other women who inspire and understand them,” says Stacy Taubman, founder/CEO of RISE Collaborative. “These ambitious and successful women are also looking for opportunities to grow personally and professionally. RISE Collaborative provides all of that, as well as a polished place to hold meetings and work productively.”
RISE Collaborative Workspace will open to its members in January 2019. Applications for membership will open on October 1, 2018.
This is the second location for RISE Collaborative. Its first in St. Louis opened in 2017 and has 250 members. As a leader in the female-focused workspace industry, RISE attracts international attention from the likes of the Today Show, USA Today, and Bloomberg. RISE is known for putting on high-value events that teach, inspire, and equip members to succeed. With a sophisticated aesthetic, national brands like Warby Parker and Nicole Miller have partnered with RISE Collaborative to engage with its high-quality community of women. Next month, Nicole Miller will come to the St. Louis location to engage with members and talk about building and maintaining a multimillion-dollar brand over three decades.
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 who can 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,” Taubman says. “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.”
RISE Collaborative was well represented in site selection and lease negotiation by Michelle Wiedman, president of Wiedman Real Estate Advisors, Ltd., a woman-owned commercial real estate firm, and Dorit Makovsky Fischer, broker/business manager of NAI Shames Makovsky.
