A Year of Awakening: Celebrating The Journey and the Future of Rise & Shine

As 2023 draws to a close, we reflect on this year’s progress – not just us founders but as a growing community. From the break of dawn each day to the stars at night, every moment this year has been a step forward in our mission to transform mornings worldwide – and we’re so glad you’re with us.

Our First Appiversary:
This year, we hit a significant milestone—our first appiversary. It’s been a year since Rise & Shine first opened its eyes – launching on World Mental Health Day 2022 and thanks to you, our journey has been nothing short of extraordinary.

Continuous Improvement:
We’ve listened and learned, ironing out bugs and implementing small improvements to ensure your mornings are smooth and purposeful. Your feedback has been our guiding star, leading us to a brighter path of accessibility and ease of use.

SEIS Achievement:
In our commitment to growth, Rise & Shine has just achieved SEIS status, laying the foundation for potential investment opportunities in the coming year. It’s a stepping stone towards expanding our horizons and enhancing your morning experience.

New Tracks Release:
Our library of wake up experiences has blossomed with new tracks, each crafted as a soundscape for every mood and ambition – and new narrators have joined us too. The plan is to have even more new tracks and narrators for 2024!

Podcast Feature:
The airwaves carried the spirit of Rise & Shine as we featured in our first podcast – Tech Talks with Lou, sharing co-founder Liz’s history in tech and her personal love for app building. It’s been incredible to be able to tell the stories of our vision and the transformation that echoes with every alarm you set.

Plans for 2024:
As we gaze into the future, 2024 gleams with promise – kicking off with a selection of tracks free throughout January. From innovative features to broader community engagements – and influencer endorsements, our targets are hight for the rest of the year too. This journey is a tough one – no one said it would be straightforward, and we have much further to go – but we’re thrilled to continue this incredible journey together with you.

A Personal Note from Liz:
Co-founder, Liz, embraced the very essence of Rise & Shine this year, using it as a cornerstone to quit smoking and drinking. It’s a testament to the power of starting your day with intention and support, and a great example of how one small change to your day can make a massive difference.

As we bid farewell to this year, we invite you to rise to the promise of a new day and shine with the potential of a new year. With Rise & Shine, awaken to a life where every new day is a canvas of incredible possibility.

Join us on this journey. Embrace the morning revolution with Rise & Shine. Here’s to another year of living, learning, and growing— together.
