The Community Business Academy is the signature program of Rising Tide Capital. It consists of 12 consecutive 3 hour sessions. The classes are conveniently held once a week on weekday evenings or Saturday mornings. Sessions run twice per year from February through May and from September through December. Entrepreneurs are taught business fundamentals like budgeting, marketing, bookkeeping and financing. Every applicant accepted into the CBA receives a full tuition waiver (worth $3,000) thanks to the generosity of RTC’s funding partners. Classes are held in 4 cities in Northern New Jersey; Jersey City, Union City, Newark, and the City of Orange Township. Graduates of the Community Business Academy become part of RTC’s alumni network and continue to receive ongoing support as they work on their businesses.
