Rising Tide Africa functions as part of a Global movement of The Rising Tide Program for Africa. It constitutes a group of women angel investors harnessing their power, network, passion and capital to positively impact and actively create a New Africa.
Rising Tide Africa (RTA) is a unique, trans-border women-oriented investment program and funded by private investors who believe they will bring about positive change by investing in the continent’s exciting start-ups and next generation to create a New Africa.
Rising Tide Africa will be powered by ARM Securities Limited and ARM Trustees Limited, both members of the ARM Group which have been leading investments in entrepreneurial ventures and are dedicated to bringing about a better Africa. In particular, ARM Securities will be bringing its financial advisory experience to help power “Rising Tide Africa” and will also share deal-flows on a case-by-case basis.
RTA shall be a leading and pre-eminent managed investment pool primarily focused on investments in digitally and technology-enabled companies. This will bring a quantitative as well as qualitative return to improving the lives and lifestyles on the African continent, by, for example, providing access to health, education, energy, water, agriculture, commerce, transport, and several communications services and infrastructure. RTA will also be actively involved in the promotion of investment literacy among women in Africa.
It is intended that Rising Tide Africa shall be a preferred equity partner in Africa and a first mover in technology and digitally-enabled, early-stage technology investing in most parts of Africa. RTA seeks to pursue investment opportunities that have the potential to yield strong financial returns and significant social impact in Africa.

Rising Tide Africa shall also engage in educating and training women to become sophisticated angel investors through its Programme, while offering them the opportunity to build a diversified portfolio of investments and receive mentoring from other women who are experienced angel investors.
