RISE 2014 is a day-long conference designed to inspire and empower the next generation of social entrepreneurs. In celebration of Bristol’s Green Capital status, this year’s conference will explore the changing nature and future of business, and discuss the nexus of things that are causing this, including green/sustainability trends, the emphasis on local independent SMEs and also the drive for improved well-being and work-life balances.
