"A Rising Tide: Financing Strategies for Women-Owned Firms" is written by Susan Coleman and Alicia Robb and published by Standford University Press. Dr. Coleman is a Professor at the University of Hartford, and Dr. Robb is a Senior Research Fellow at the Kauffman Foundation.

The book draws on the Kauffman Firm Survey, covering over 4,000 new businesses, reaching conclusions from the data yet presenting the authors' own opinions and ideas as well.

A Rising Tide looks at the financial strategies that have helped women entrepreneurs succeed. The authors discuss the issues facing women-owned businesses during the business lifecycle, covering a wide rage of different business approaches, from home-based businesses to high-growth tech enterprises.

A sample of what you will find inside includes a chapter on family businesses and a chapter on minority-owned firms. The book includes charts and graphs of data pulled from the Kauffman Survey to support its theses, along with case studies of actual businesses.
