OUR IMPACT

Since 2004, Rising Tide Capital has grown from a local neighborhood organization working with 15 entrepreneurs per year, into an institution which now serves more than 1,000 entrepreneurs per year in both English and Spanish, operates in 6 New Jersey cities, and has partnered with an organization on the South Side of Chicago to successfully adapt our core model.

IMPACT ON COMMUNITY

Together we discovered hope is more than just sentiment, it’s an action. [Rising Tide Capital entrepreneurs] will contribute to a revitalized economy that helps to build flourishing communities and lifts us all.

TAMMY MURPHY FIRST LADY OF NEW JERSEY

A lot of the entrepreneurs in the communities that Rising Tide services come from tougher backgrounds, so they struggle financially and economically. So a hit like COVID-19 is an even bigger hit for them than a traditional company because these companies don’t have that access to greater resources and support.

DATA DRIVEN APPROACH

Rising Tide Capital uses a sophisticated information management system to track its progress and monitor performance in real time. Quarterly and annual dashboards provide insights that lead to program enhancements and increased impact. Future replication partners will be able to license our data tracking and analysis support for their local communities as well, enabling them and their funding partners to save years of development time and effort to effectively track short and long-term outcomes.
