In response to COVID-19, Rhyze Ventures program delivery is offered virtually for the safety of clients, mentors, staff, and industry specialists. While the program began with in-class sessions, delivery will remain in an online environment.
All education sessions are offered online via Zoom with special attention given to participatory best practices. Group networking, check-ins, and project work with industry specialists and advisors are virtual, however there may be optional in person events as public health guidelines evolve. Flexibility and agility have been relied upon to accommodate the current situation and the safety of all will be our priority as we move into the post-COVID timeframe.
