Rising Tide Innovation Center was established to meet the needs of small business owners, entrepreneurs, veterans, solo professionals, and STEM start-ups for a professional collaborative workspace in St. Petersburg.


The space, located in downtown St Pete, provides a broad variety of co-working options. Members can choose plans ranging from “virtual office” services through traditional open co-working arrangements to individual, private work spaces.  Included is a vibrant collaborative atmosphere, snacks, coffee and other drinks, high-speed internet, whiteboard walls, and video enabled conference room access. Founded by attorneys Leigh Fletcher and Tina Fischer, Rising Ride is more than just a space to plug in a laptop – it’s a place to connect with like-minded collaborators.
