The Rising Tide Program and Network is a global movement to increase women’s participation in angel investing as an asset class. The Rising Tide Program has been developed to provide an enriching investment experience; including an investment portfolio in start-ups, education and training in the investment process, and the development of a global angel community of successful women across the US, Europe, Africa, Middle East, Asia, and Latin America.
The Rising Tide Angel Training Program is an innovative way to learn-by-doing as an angel investor. We bring together up to 99 women into a program to build a diversified portfolio of investments in terms of both sector and geography. Online training materials are available to all participants in the program, which were sponsored by the Kauffman Foundation. Additional training is provided to program participants through pitch sessions, online podcasts & webinars, Q&A sessions, angel investor hours, in-person regional workshops, as well as national and international events.
The Rising Tide Angel Training Program launched in 2015 in both the United States and Europe. The lead investors in each of these programs were nine women with significant angel investing experience that wanted to support the next generation of women angel investors. As we continue launch new programs all over the world (Africa 2017, Asia 2018, Latin America 2018, MENA 2018), our growing network of Rising Tide Alumni become part of the Rising Tide Network.
