We believe success is built on relationships. That is why we host events throughout the year to bring Members together from across regional groups. Events include mixers, lunches, special dinners, poker nights and golf outings. Our events allow Members to connect in a less formal, fun-filled atmosphere. Members also have the opportunity to host events to highlight their firm or focus on a particular theme or topic.
Our mastermind format allows you to tap into the collective knowledge and experience of the Highrise community to work on issues that are relevant to your success. For some members, this means connecting with new clients while for others, it’s about refining their business strategy or solving operational issues. In the end, it’s about utilizing the power of collaboration. to achieve success.
The research also shows that face-to-face business meetings produce more revenue and profit than any other form of communication. This research is one of the cornerstones of our model.
Our groups are designed around vertical environments to make getting to and from meetings very time efficient. Often, our Members can walk a block or two or even take the elevator to their meetings.
To further encourage collaboration among like-minded members across regional groups, Highrise offers five Verticals – real estate, mergers and acquisitions, legal and entertainment. Vertical meetings are held quarterly and focus on industry-specific developments and opportunities. The collective experience and focused objectives create an environment for engaging
discussion and notable results.
Highrise has enabled me to significantly expand my network. I appreciate the fact that my group consists of top-notch professionals without any overlap in specialties. I have referred several matters to fellow members of my group and I look forward to continuing to cultivate these relationships.

"I like Highrise because of the quality of professionals whom I have met, the walking-distance proximity of the meetings to my office, and the industry-vertical meetings that are available to me outside of
my home group."
