  • Experience and Approach

THE MODEL WORKS

In 2013, we piloted our model with Sunshine Enterprises, the small business development arm of a century-old faith-based organization in Chicago. Since then, Sunshine Enterprises has graduated 33 classes of the Community Business Academy, served hundreds of clients through their Business Acceleration Services (full-service entrepreneur support) and fully adopted Rising Tide Capital’s systems and processes for managing the program and tracking outcomes.

Over the course of 5 years, Sunshine Enterprises has outpaced Rising Tide’s historic track record across every metric and milestone. Simply put, they’ve knocked it out of the park.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • HOW DO I KNOW IF THE RTC MODEL IS FOR ME?

    Let’s start with a conversation. Reach out to us through the form below and we’ll hop on a call to discuss the specifics of this opportunity. From there, we can start a mutual vetting process to make sure that this program is the right fit for you and that our organizations are a good match for each other.

  • WHAT IS A WHITE LABEL APPROACH?

    The white label solution means that the model will serve your community through your local organization and be known by your own name and brand. Rising Tide Capital provides the model, infrastructure, and training – the rest is in your hands to scale, innovate, and impact your community.

    Over the last 15 years, we’ve learned to focus on local assets and support their growth. You have the drive, passion, vision, and talent. You have the knowledge and the trust built up in your city. Rather than parachuting in as a national operation, we want to come alongside you and provide the back-end system that allows your organization to grow and thrive.

  • WHY THE “WHOLE MODEL” AND NOT INDIVIDUAL PARTS?

    In short — “the whole thing is the thing”. The unique value our program brings is not just the excellence of the individual parts, but the synchronicity and intention of every element being built to work together. Carefully crafted application forms auto-populate in a customized database. Refined entrepreneur action planning drives our coaching methodologies. An asset-based approach to the mission-space sparks innovation in advanced program modules. Working in concert, the tools, know-how, support, and vision craft a system ready-made for impactful and sustainable implementation in your community.
