Welcome To The East End's Biggest
Start-up Pitch Competition

RipTide is brought to you by i-hamptons, the first community dedicated to entrepreneurs and innovators on the East End.  For more information on how to join this community click here.

Riptide is back for its third year, and bigger than ever. This year we had 46 local companies submit their business ideas to the competition. 23 of those companies made it to our semi-finals and five lucky finalists were voted to present at our finale event on November 9th at the Southampton Arts Center.  

Up for grabs was $50,000 in grant funding, prizes and mentorship from the East Ends most successful entrepreneurs.

Below you can see our 2019 contestants and their initial pitch videos!
