Rise & Grind is a cowork space, yes, but it’s much more than that. It’s not only a space to work from for our members…it’s a community. Everyone knows everyone, services are exchanged, ideas are brought to life through collaboration. It’s so great to have opinions from people all across the board. It really is a magical place where many businesses have flourished. We’ve come to realize that Rise & Grind isn’t just a place to work and it’s not only beneficial to the people working within the space…it’s a resource to the community. These members working from our space are so talented, driven and are just genuinely great all-around people! If you need digital marketing assistance, we have multiple marketing agencies working from our space – all offering something different. If you need finance or accounting help, we’ve got you. A few of our members have put together a little description of their business, services and upcoming events. Below you can learn more about just a few of our awesome members, what they do and how they can help you!
BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS
Since 1968, BBBS has focused on providing children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one‐to‐one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever. Mentors, or “Bigs,” provide exposure to situations and experiences that our children, or “Littles,” may not otherwise have, whether it be because of parental illness, limited parenting, poverty, etc. On the surface level, matches share in a variety of activities to laugh, learn, and expand the friendship.
However, on a deeper level, our Littles are learning about healthy friendships, how to make good choices, how to problem‐solve and when and how to engage in healthy conflict mediation. For many children, this may be the only consistent mentor they have helping to encourage, challenge, and value them.

VERVE CREDIT UNION
Helping non-profit groups, sponsoring local events, supporting entrepreneurs and investing time and money into making the Oshkosh community a better place to live—those shared values are what make Verve, a Credit Union, and Rise & Grind Oshkosh perfect partners.
Verve doesn’t sound like your average credit union and that’s because it’s not! We believe your financial life should have as much energy and enthusiasm, or verve, as you do.
Verve is a member-owned cooperative with 15 locations throughout Wisconsin (with our 16th branch opening on Washburn Avenue in Oshkosh this fall) and more than 250 team members serving our 56,000 members. We believe in listening to our members to provide high-quality financial tools and strive to make managing your finances as easy as possible.
One of our most popular services is eSign, which allows you to complete a loan application completely online (no need to try to squeeze a branch visit into your busy schedule). Another member-favorite is our Round-Up service, which rounds your purchases up to the nearest dollar and deposits the change into your savings.
Verve also offers a variety of business tools designed to help you keep the lights on, doors open and business hopping, including electronic deposits and payments, business checking, savings, money market and credit card options, as well as lines of credit, commercial or SBA loans. Our commercial loan decisions are made locally—always—and we supported member businesses with $267 million in financing in 2017.
Guided by our seven Cooperative Principles, we know when we invest in our communities we make them a better place to live, work and worship in, which is why you’ll see us out and about at community events and teaching kids in our schools to be smart about their finances. Check out upcoming events and take a look at where we’ve popped up in the community with our Random Acts of Verve.
