Who We Are

Founded in 2018, a subsidiary of Riva Group Limited, Riva School for Entrepreneurship (RISE) is on a mission to revolutionize and reinvent entrepreneurial education. We will teach entrepreneurs the practical skills and secrets of meaningful entrepreneurship in the most inspirational and personal way possible. We know the needs of every entrepreneur is different.

Our Mission

Our mission is to enhance and contribute to the economic upliftment of Africa, believing that entrepreneurs are integral to economic growth and are job creators. We educate and nurture entrepreneurs through unconventional practical entrepreneurial education and enterprise development using researched, proven psychological and NLP methodologies. At RISE we focus on psychological aspects of entrepreneurial dynamics to create high-growth, high-scale, high-impact and funding worthy entrepreneurs.

Why Psychology?

  • A 2014 study by Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, cited in Forbes, found that 91 percent of entrepreneurial success is psychology.
  • A 2015 report from the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) found that establishing a successful business may be more likely if the person behind it has certain psychological traits.

Our Goal

Our vision is to develop 200 industrialists by the year 2030.
