Our Story

Established September 17, 2015

Founder Ke'Ira Lewis reflected heavily on the level she wanted to take her current business.  She thought about the importance of having a support system while in the process of establishing an entity, and pondered specifically on the statistic that women couldn't get along when joined together.  She wondered exactly how many women, who were in the need of support such as networking, mentorship, and encouragement, existed. 

A vision to create a coalition of female entrepreneurs manifested.  With the help of two friends, the name We Rise by Design: Women Entrepreneurs formulated.  We Rise serves as a networking platform for the promoting and enrichment of businesses and organizations founded by women.  We achieve this via monthly and yearly events, that allow us to share our excellence, while building one another up through encouragement and motivation.
