Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to participate in the start-up competition if I want to attend RISE?

Anyone student over 18 can attend, and participating in the competition is not required.

I don't live near Rutgers, is there anywhere I can stay overnight so I can attend both days of the conference?

Yes, we will accomodate for students that request overnight housing in their registration.

I'm not a business student or a coder! What can I do at RISE?

We're all about education and expanding horizons, and nobody needs to enter RISE with a predetermined set of skills. All workshops will be taught at the introductory level, so come eager to learn something new!

How do I stay updated on speaker reveals, partner additions, and other event changes?

Follow the Rutgers Entrepreneurial Society on Facebook; we will be posting all updates on there.
