A Publication.

Rise Collaborative seeks to promote small businesses, artists, non profits, and advocacy groups in Buffalo and throughout Western New York through posts on this website and with events that bring people together to help a business or promote a cause. If you’d like your organization or event to be featured, or if you’d like to be a contributing writer, please hit us up! Risecollaborative@gmail.com

Cultivating Culture.

Rise Collaborative works to build community by promoting the best instagrams from around the region every week to its followers, exposing them to different points of view and techniques by encouraging people to use #RiseBFLO on their uploads. Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter have been used as public forums to discuss proposed changes to Buffalo’s laws, accessible transportation, major events, and more.
Through the use of our social media networks and organizing events, we can also help your small business or event get more people though the door. Contact us to talk about your needs and goals.
