Rise Interactive is a digital marketing agency located in Chicago. Founded in 2004, Rise Interactive has over 250 employees. Rise Interactive was founded in 2004 by CEO Jon Morris, following a second-place finish in the University of Chicago’s prestigious New Venture Challenge business plan competition. While his initial idea was to teach traditional marketers about digital, the overwhelming interest for Morris to lead these efforts resulted in the agency’s launch. We’ve since grown from a simple business plan to an award-winning digital marketing agency, fortunate enough to serve some of the world’s leading brands.
