About eRise

Innovative Partnerships for Digital Empowerment

is a non-profit organization that has been established to Digitally Empower individuals and less privileged communities.

eRise was established in 2019 by Rob Monster, an American and incurable optimist, with an emphasis on searching for true technology.

Rob is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Epik.com, a domain name registrar and web host. eRise is focused on Digital Empowerment initiatives that are capital-efficient, and which improve access to content, community and commerce and are also aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) which are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. With one of the main challenges being the high cost of internet access, eRise uses clever low-cost technology to essentially provide free WIFI to these communities. It also identifies and screens Digital Empowerment strategies that could benefit from cross-border interoperability and scale economies.

At eRise, our vision is to see individuals live to their full potential regardless of where they are born.

Our mission is to help the less privileged by providing technologies and opportunities that could alleviate poverty and ultimately make them achieve their dreams. Our projects are focused on Digital Empowerment initiatives that are capital-efficient, and which improve access to content, community and commerce and are also aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) which are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.
