Culinary Conference Center at HCCC 161 Newkirk Street Jersey City, NJ Directions


This Fall, Rising Tide Capital—a Jersey City-based nonprofit organization that helps low income entrepreneurs start and grow successful businesses—will be hosting the 2nd annual the Start Something Challenge.

New Jersey entrepreneurs have until September 6th to join the Challenge, which includes opportunities to network with business experts, perfect an elevator pitch, gain visibility for their business venture, and a chance to win a $10,000 top prize!

This competition is free to enter and is open to any New Jersey resident 18 years or older, who operates a microbusiness or has a strong business idea. In this second challenge, we are hoping to offer even more value to the participants, and will be offering a free Start Something Challenge workshop on Tuesday, August 27 from 6:30-8:30pm at the Hudson County Community College, to help people get their Challenge submissions together.
