High Tide is a startup commercialization program that enables entrepreneurs to build their products and take them to market…faster. Unlike similar programs, High Tide helps startups build the necessary components for a successful business FAST by utilizing a combination of expertise, education, and intensive programs around Product, Positioning, Sales, and Go-To-Market.
Once selected, the startups move to Phoenix for approximately three months, during which we work intensively with them on filling critical gaps in their business – product/prototyping, user validation, positioning, sales systems, and go-to-market. This process ultimately makes the companies more viable, more scaleable, and more investible. At the end of the program, there is a Demo Day when the entrepreneurs present their companies to an audience of investors, advisors, business leaders, and community members that can help their business.
