Stacy Taubman is driven by one thing: helping people achieve. She is especially passionate about empowering teen girls, women and minorities. For more than a decade, she worked in secondary education as a math teacher, but a tragedy involving a student became a tipping point for Stacy to take her natural aptitude for leadership in a drastically different direction. In 2017, she founded RISE Collaborative - a community and workspace for all women to grow and achieve. RISE isn't just for start-ups or entrepreneurs, but also for women who work in corporate environments, small businesses, and nonprofits. Additionally, it's a place where teen girls can do homework, receive mentoring and surround themselves with inspiring female role models. With weekly events designed for members to learn and inspire professional development, RISE Collaborative has quickly grown in both Denver and St. Louis. In this interview, find out more about Stacy’s journey and the enterprise she has built.
