About Sunrise

Sunrise is our love letter to startups and the people who build them. Now, more than ever, we need wild hearts to pave the way. Every one of us must set to work on building the future. Sunrise exists to inspire the next generation of wild hearts.

Sunrise started in 2014 when Blackbird’s founders Rick and Niki pulled the whole thing together in six weeks. With limited resources, experience and time, the whole community came together to make Sunrise happen. This year, we are featuring speakers and themes designed to provoke debate and spark new ideas. Join us as we paint a picture of the future and what could be.
