The Rising Tide Business Platform

‘Championing Dublin’s Business Community’
Welcome to The Rising Tide Business Platform & Community, folks.
As the old saying goes; ‘a rising tide lifts all boats’.
Our mission is to provide the platform which encourages ‘Community-Spirit’ amongst Dublin’s Business Community in order to give our SME’s the best chance of survival from the turmoil of the Lockdown, to remove uncertainty from their future and ultimately for the benefit of Our City and it’s citizens.
There has never been a more important time for Dublin’s businesses to work together and to support each-other.
We, at The Rising Tide, will promote our member businesses through Dublin’s streets (broad and narrow!), through our online channels with personality, professionalism and creative promotions. We will be the ‘boots on the ground’ for our member businesses. We will be busy-out promoting our clients, whilst our business owners are toiling behind the shop-counters (or in the office spaces / homes!) tending to their customers’ needs.
We ask all Dubliners, to get behind our local businesses. Large and small. Visit them, support them in any way you can, whenever you can. Variety is the spice of life, after all!
We’ll work with our member businesses to get you, our fellow Dubs, the best deals possible and together we’ll drive Dublin forward. We have the energy. We have the determination. We have the ‘Coffee + Shoe-leather’!
Let’s do this!

Progress across the week was stunted, despite our consistent efforts. Avenues for onboarding new businesses, chasing payments, receiving prompt feedback and / or responses, and even the weather, seemed to have a gravitational pull on one’s momentum! . . .
