Rising Tide Capital exists because of a wide array of supporters from every socio-economic background. From financial support and event sponsorships by large institutions to monthly donations by individuals and alumni entrepreneurs, our work would not be possible without the generosity of our investors.
Single mothers, veterans, the formerly incarcerated, immigrants and the disabled have been afforded full scholarships and on-going support in order to achieve their entrepreneurial visions.
Over the years, our social investors have educated over 1,000 entrepreneurs in multiple cities, promoting businesses, job creation and economic growth in urban neighborhoods by providing long-term support through Rising Tide Capital.
Most importantly, these investors have created a powerful and replicable model for community and economic development that can be adapted in other cities, impacting thousands of lives.
“We believe the Rising Tide model will have a powerful impact on many, many cities in the years to come and it is an honor to help that come to fruition even in a small way.”DAVID BLANCHARDCO-FOUNDER & PRESIDENT, PRAXIS
I launched my business, Brand Excitement immediately after graduation, and six months later I moved from working on it part-time to full-time. My business has since grown to the point where I am making five figures a month. It allows me to do what I love and take care of my family, while putting my talents out there to help others.BEATRICE JOHNSTON CEO, BRAND EXCITEMENT
