ONE INDUSTRY SPECIALIST PER GROUP
PARTNERS & UPPER
The power of online meetings has been astounding. When we were forced to go virtual, we were amazed how well people came together nationally to collaborate and make new connections. This was the motivation to start purely virtual Groups across the country, Highrise Virtual.
Forrest Blake, Founder of Highrise Networks
Highrise was formed in 2015 and we currently have nearly 50 Groups in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego, Dallas, Houston, Fort Worth, Atlanta, Austin, Denver and now Virtual only Groups.
Our groups are based on the premise of collaboration. We invite seasoned experts from across disciplines and provide a rich environment for members to capitalize on opportunities and overcome challenges together. This method promotes meaningful relationships and enduring success.
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.
To further encourage collaboration among like-minded members across regional groups, Highrise offers 12 Verticals – real estate, mergers and acquisitions, legal, women, employment, technology, entertainment, management consulting, non-profit, transportation, and more! Vertical meetings are held quarterly and focus on industry-specific developments and opportunities.
We believe success is built on relationships. That is why we host live events throughout the year to bring Members together from across regional groups. Events include mixers, special dinners, annual national conferences. Our events allow Members to connect in a less formal, fun-filled atmosphere.
To ensure that our groups remain mutually beneficial to all members, Highrise membership is by invitation only and limited to senior-level professionals. Members are selected through an interview process. Our membership committee takes into consideration the experience, knowledge, geography and collaborative mindset of each potential member.
Professional diversity is evaluated in every new member decision. The mix of industry specialties in each group creates a positive dynamic and guarantees discipline exclusivity. Each group is carefully curated to promote an enriching experience for all members.
