About Rising Tide
Promote freedom to improve quality of life everywhere
Our philanthropic work is organized in two entities – Rising Tide Foundation (RTF) and Rising Tide Foundation for Clinical Cancer Research (RTFCCR). Both are charitable, non-profit organizations established in 2010. Rising Tide GmbH is the service company for both foundations; it is responsible for their financial prosperity and operative well-being, and for sustainable income generation.

Find out how we are living up to our vision at Rising Tide Foundation and Rising Tide Foundation for Clinical Cancer Research.
Over the past decade, Rising Tide has supported projects around the globe, impacting thousands of individuals and patients. Both Freedom in Practice and Clinical Cancer Research have built networks of strategic partners around the world to magnify funding, individual empowerment, and transformational change.
Both foundations entered a new stage of funding with newly defined focus areas in which they will inspire other philanthropists and organizations to partner and support global projects.
After 10 years, Rising Tide Asia (RTA) decided to focus entirely on its philanthropic activities. The investment activities were spun-off and the team formed a new investment advisory firm in Zurich, providing astute stewardship and customized investment advisory solutions to its clients. The intellectual property portfolio was sold to a strategic buyer to continue to maintain, develop, and enhance what Rising Tide has built and established.
Rising Tide made the strategic decision to diversify its portfolio and establish businesses in the field of medical technology and life sciences. The foundation also made a significant investment in oncology-focused biotechnology, creating Novintum Biotechnology with the goal to provide strategic, financial, and business development guidance, along with its operating subsidiary Novintum Bioscience UK, the corporate laboratory facilities.
The Rising Tide intellectual property team hired their first resources to focus on the development of clinical innovations to bring improvements of clinical practice to the patient’s bedside.
Rising Tide Foundation (RTF) held its first Board meeting and allocated funds to its first entrepreneurial effort. Rising Tide Foundation for Clinical Cancer Research (RTFCCR) funded its first grant in integrative oncology intervention. RTF made its first cancer-focused grant to help the local cancer league of Schaffhausen improve screening for breast cancer.
Rising Tide Foundation (RTF), an entrepreneurial, privately-endowed foundation with a dual function of philanthropy and business, was established. Its international, impact-driven philanthropic grant program focused on three main areas: cancer research, libertarian, and social/educational causes. Rising Tide Foundation for Clinical Cancer Research (RTFCCR), a charitable, non-profit organization was also established. With patients’ needs at the center of its funding focus, RTFCCR supports translational cancer research and pioneering clinical trials that can improve patients’ survival and quality of life (within 3 years or less).
Rising Tide – a premier investment research, intellectual property and innovation management company – was founded. Located in the heart of Schaffhausen, Switzerland, it licensed and managed a portfolio of healthcare-focused intellectual property for major healthcare clients in the United States. Additionally, it provided investment research and reporting services to a group of private clients.
