“A rising tide doesn't raise people who don't have a boat. We have to build the boat for them. We have to give them the basic infrastructure to rise with the tide.”

We love our community

The Rising Tide Initiative takes its name from John F. Kennedy's famous saying, "A rising tide lifts all boats."

We come alongside new entrepreneurs to help them achieve their dreams and to help them help the Fort Worth community. We believe that by supporting new entrepreneurs succeed, the community around each new business will flourish and grow as well.  

We’re active in our community, and we would love for you to visit us at one of our Fort Worth locations.
