We are Rise Collaborative.  Kevin Heffernan and Drew Brown.  We see Buffalo transforming.  While we welcome all of the construction downtown, on the waterfront, and at the medical campus, we realize we live in a very large city.  There are people and organizations working to make Buffalo a better place to live, work, and play, and they’re doing it without leaning on millions in tax breaks.

We seek to promote and to connect those people and organizations while we explore Buffalo’s renaissance found within small business owners, artists, advocacy groups, government and anything in-between.
