An Innovative "Learn By Investing" Venture Fund

The Rising Tide Fund is a smart and streamlined approach to investing launched by Dr Alicia Robb, of the Kauffman Foundation and Next Wave Ventures, and Trish Costello, CEO of Portfolia and CEO Emeritus of the Kauffman Fellows, in partnership with nine of the country's top angel investors.  

These remarkable lead angels identify top new companies and advise the fund, while investors can participate and learn through the process as time allows. Investors are invited to online webinars and podcasts, regional meetings, and a Global Women's Investor Summit.
