The Collective Rising Has Been Accquired – A Note From Our Founder
The Collective Rising |
To my loyal TCR Community and Supporters,
I have an exciting announcement to share – one that I have been looking forward to sharing with you all for some time now, as I wholeheartedly believe this is the right next step for us all, and a pivotal moment we must celebrate.
I would like to begin this email by saying that I have such immense gratitude for everyone who has been on this journey with me and my team over the last several years.
The Collective Rising has come a long way from its humble origins – a blog I started back in 2018 with the intention of uplifting, inspiring and empowering ambitious and accomplished women to share their stories and experiences to pave the way forward for others.
Many evolutions and iterations later, and here we are. Present-day. March of 2022. A digital-membership community, 13k+ exceptional members strong.
My commitment has always been to you – my members, my community.
I have spent the last 3.5 years striving to serve you all to the best of my ability. My team and I have worked hard to help you be seen, be heard, share your experiences and dreams in your own words and on your terms, succeed, achieve your goals, and of course, be authentically empowered. And today as I share this news, I want to assure you all that my commitment to each of you and what I set out to achieve with creating The Collective Rising remains steadfast.
One of the greatest ‘take-a-ways’ I have learned over the last several years is that as living beings, our ability to adapt and our willingness to embrace change and evolve is paramount to our ability to not just survive, but thrive.
Oftentimes expansion requires a metamorphosis, and this acquisition is The Collective Rising’s metamorphosis.
This acquisition is intended to serve you and provide you with additional offerings, resources and functionalities that will help you get ahead, succeed, and reach your full potential.
Our new home was created by two remarkable women that I truly think the world of – Founders of Entreprenista Media (parent company of The Entreprenista Podcast, Startups in Stilettos Podcast, and The Entreprenista League) and Socialfly (the leading social-first digital agency), Stephanie Cartin and Courtney Spritzer.
Aside from Stephanie and Courtney both being incredibly successful serial founders and businesswomen with impeccable track records, the infrastructure and resources Entreprenista is able to provide is unparalleled to what I have been able to offer you previously at The Collective Rising.
Essential to The Collective Rising have been the three pillars – visibility, curation and community.
With that in-mind, I am thrilled to introduce you to The Entreprenista League. The Entreprenista League provides many of the same exceptional functionalities and features you have loved at The Collective Rising, in addition to providing next-level connection opportunities through forum features, direct in-mail functionalities, and more intimate virtual events (just for members of The League) that allow for deeper connections to be fostered and flourish. This level of connection is something many of you have requested over the years, and I am thrilled that you will now be able to have it over at The Entreprenista League, as I truly believe access to this type of peer-to-peer support will be a true game-changer for so many of you.
I will be remaining involved post-acquisition, serving as a Senior Advisor to Entreprenista, assisting with ongoing Creative and Strategy needs, as well as helping to facilitate Partnerships.
I will also be consulting with Socialfly, helping more women-owned businesses expand their reach and increase their visibility.
I am looking forward to working with Stephanie, Courtney and the entire Entreprenista team to continue expanding the company’s footprint and develop new projects together, with the shared goal of uplifting and empowering as many women as possible around the world.
We have support in place ready to help you make this transition alongside me and join The Entreprenista League.

As for what is ‘next up’ for me – there is quite a bit up-coming on the horizon. I hope we will remain in close contact, and of course, you can follow along at @kittyschur and www.kittyschur.com or reach out to me via email regarding anything Entreprenista or Socialfly related at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Living in true alignment has been something I have worked diligently to prioritize over the past few years. This next chapter – this acquisition, is something that I believe wholeheartedly is in the collective best interest of us all.
Thank you for trusting me. For believing in me. And most of all, for embarking and (I hope) continuing on this journey with me.
I look forward to seeing you in The League very soon.
