art_demmellash_cnnAlfa Demmellash has struggled all her life. She grew up with no money and surrounded by devastation and horror in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

After her mother fleed from the country and set out to raise money to bring her daughter to the United States, Demmellash dreamed to be able to help locals who were struggling to make money and turn their ideas into dreams.

With her mother’s efforts and the help of financial aid, Demmellash was able to attend Harvard University.  After college, Demmellash and schoolmate started Rising Tide Capital.  “to help those who had ideas and abilities but needed the education and support to launch or grow their businesses.”
