Unlike other marketplaces, we prioritize inclusivity and accessibility in all that we do. From the design of our website and user experience to the brands allowed on Rise - we put LGBTQIA2+ and QTBIPOC creative entrepreneurs first.

Queer & Trans Owned

Mission Driven 

We're helping shoppers build a future economy in which marginalized business owners and creatives thrive - annnd we all know where to go and find them. 

We value EQUITY

Committing to equitable practices is not only better for our communities - it's better for business.


Shopping online should be more than a transactional experience - it should build community and relationships, just like shopping in-person. 


Whether a business is big or little, we all deserve the opportunity to grow, experiment and challenge the status quo. 


We believe its beyond important to support small, local businesses, and are dedicated to centering underrepresented owners with additional economic barriers.

These artists and entrepreneurs are the cultural foundation of our communities and often the most economically marginalized. 

Join a movement to create virtual events and digital spaces that celebrate queer and BIPOC communities.
