How it Works

Each innovation on RISE Startups is independently created and crafted by the person behind it. The innovators you see on this portal have complete access and responsibility over their projects and ideas. They spend days, weeks, even months building their idea pages, creating tools for unmet needs, and brainstorming what rewards to offer backers. When they feel ready, a creator can launch their innovation on the site and share it with the community.

Every innovator sets their project’s funding goal and deadline. If people like the project, they can pledge money to make it happen. If the project succeeds in reaching its funding goal, all backers’ credit cards are charged when time expires. If the project falls short, no one is charged. Funding on RISE Startups is all-or-nothing. Learn more by viewing The Innovation Handbook or the Getting Started tutorial page.
