If your company would like to get more engaged with the Rice Alliance, we encourage you to become an underwriter. Sponsors benefit from elevated brand awareness and intentional connections to an expansive, but tight-knit entrepreneurial community. We are eager to develop long-lasting relationships with our underwriters and find opportunities that meet your goals.
