Root to Rise PBC was founded with the mission to improve human wellbeing through personal connections and a meaningful exchange of social and economic value, using technology but going well beyond it, to catalyze authentic communities and ethical transactions.

We envision a higher use of technology as a catalyst for relationships and prosperity that are key to all of us flourishing.

RISE is our app-based tech platform to create a market network that powers an ecosystem where teachers, instructors and coaches of wellbeing activities can engage with a community of participants thereby building financial wellbeing for themselves and connected and holistic wellbeing for everyone.
