BWE is a proud member of the
Rising Tide Society!
What began as a conversation with dear friends over wine about the loneliness that entrepreneurship can bring has transformed into an international movement for creative entrepreneurs and small business owners built on a foundation of community over competition. The Rising Tide Society began simply as a dream, and quickly grew to a community of creatives from all backgrounds and industries uniting for one reason. A movement dedicated to the people it serves, Rising Tide Society focuses on building community locally and transforming not only the creative industry, but also the world.
In May of 2015, the Rising Tide Society hosted its first set of TuesdaysTogether gatherings in twelve cities across the nation. Coffee shops and wineries filled with small business owners seeking a new mindset in the creative landscape—one built on relationships. Creatives who typically spent day after day sitting at their desks with only the hum of the computer and their third cup of coffee to keep them company now had the opportunity to engage in community within their own towns. In less and a month, applications from creatives began flooding in. Seeing a need within their communities, everyone from photographers to boutique owners, bakers to artists began transforming the mindset within their cities from one of competition, to community.
