Our mission is to make the world a smaller place by creating connections – helping to connect more entrepreneurs and business owners with their ideal prospects and referral partners who they love to work with.
We do this through connecting people through our in-person events, and we do it through our done-for-you lead generation services – directly connecting our clients with their ideal prospects and referral partners.
Although Jeremy and John have been working together since 2015, the seeds of their partnership was formed over 70 years earlier, through the courage of two men who never met.
Jeremy’s grandfather, David Danzyger (above right), was a Holocaust survivor who escaped from Nazi Germany, while John’s grandfather and namesake, John Harriman Corcoran Sr. (above left), was a B-17 Captain and pilot who flew 35 missions over nazi Germany during WWII.
Rise25 seeks to honor Jeremy & John’s grandfathers’ legacies – and the service and sacrifice of all veterans and survivors – by helping to build stronger connections between business leaders, which leads to stronger communities and more lasting bonds.
As a thank you to all veterans who have served in uniform, Rise25 also donates time, energy and resources to charitable causes which encourage and support veteran entrepreneurship.
If you are a veteran entrepreneur, you can apply to attend a future event here.
