RYSE ShowcaseThe hit of E3Xpo 2017 & 2018! The RYSE (Recognizing Youth Skills in Entrepreneurship) Showcase brought together some of the brightest and innovative youth entrepreneurs in Jacksonville. Businesses were visited by all the vendors and over 500 guests. Youth had an opportunity to present about their businesses to an audience and received votes. At the end of the day Goddess Food Factory was selected as the first RYSE Showcase winner. We obviously made a great choice as this same young business was recently featured on the Steve Harvey Show! In 2018 Sweet Christi's and Isaiah's Brew stole the show.
