Dallas-based aviation startup Rise does not employ any pilots or own any planes. Using a proprietary technology platform, the company is able to cater to a community of frequent travelers who want to experience private charter service. Techweek aims to celebrate innovators across various industries, which is why we are so excited to have Nick Kennedy of Rise take the stage at the Techweek Dallas Summit 2016.
Techweek recognizes that Dallas is more than just Cowboys football and BBQ. Dallas has a rich history of business formation and a vibrant tech ecosystem that should be appreciated. With the goal of helping to facilitate conversations and cultivate relationships in the tech space, Techweek knows that Dallas was not a city to pass up. Techweek Dallas (Oct. 31 to Nov. 4) will not only feature thought-provoking panels and an exciting startup competition, but will also provide three nights of concerts with headlining acts Matt & Kim and Purity Ring. Be sure to grab your Summit tickets to hear Nick discuss the impact of Rise’s technology on transportation on the Techweek Dallas stage on November 3.
Nick is the Founder and CEO of Rise. His own experiences traveling via private plane are a big reason he started the company. Since founding Rise in 2015, thousands of frequent travelers in Dallas, Austin, and Houston have been able to achieve a work-life balance thanks to the convenience offered by Nick and his company. Nick lives in Dallas with his wife and kids and enjoys cycling, skiing, and running. He has also completed the Ironman® triathlon.
