The Challenge

What is The Start Something Challenge?

We at Rising Tide Capital believe beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the future–and how we build the jobs of the future—rests in the hands and hearts of the millions of entrepreneurs and small businesses, across this country.

This is why, inspired by the Earthrise moment, we have reimagined The Start Something Challenge–to encourage graduates of our Community Business Academy to expand their markets through social-media, network with fellow entrepreneurs, craft the perfect elevator pitch, and most importantly, affirm their ability to effect transformative change in their communities.
